The Borders Book Festival has established itself as a key national literary and arts event. From an audience of just 400 in 2004, it now draws some 34,000 visitors to the magical Harmony Garden and its orchard in Melrose each year. Tranquil herbaceous borders, apple trees and greenhouses are suddenly transformed by flags and banners, tents and marquees, bars and cafés, a bookshop and ticket office, hospitality and VIP areas, all producing a tsunami of sounds from standing ovations to children’s laughter as performers, buskers and entertainers mingle with the crowds. Its celebratory atmosphere is equally loved by world-renowned authors, thought-leaders, comedians, political pundits and superstars of both sport and screen who come to inspire, enlighten and entertain.
