Book Week 2022 cancelled

Kirkcudbright Book Week Society has reluctantly decided that, given the current uncertainty surrounding the Omicron covid variant, Book Week will  not go ahead in the first week of March. We appreciate that this will be a disappointment to many people, a disappointment we share, but we do not feel it would be wise to proceed given the current situation.

We hope that the event can go ahead in 2023 when, hopefully, the picture will be more optimistic.

Book week decision delayed

Kirkcudbright Book Week Society has decided, given the current uncertainty surrounding the new covid variant, to decide in January if the 2022 book week will go ahead as planned in early March.

The society had planned to take the decision on December 14 but does not feel that the situation will be clear enough by then and public safety has always been our overriding concern.

We’ll keep you informed on the website and on our Facebook page.

Book Week 2022

Following the cancellation of Kirkcudbright Book Week 2021 due to covid restrictions, Kirkcudbright Book Week Society is delighted to announce that planning is under way for it to return in 2022. The week will take place between Monday February 28 and Saturday March 5 and include World Book Day for children on the Thursday.

If you or your organisation wish to be involved in an event, perhaps acting as a volunteer or maybe supporting the initiative as a sponsor for an event, or if you wish to stage your own event, you can contact Kirkcudbright Book Week Society committee member and event co-ordinator John Dean at or 07889 554931.

We hope to present an exciting programme so watch this space!

Stay safe, everyone.
