2016 brochure cover

We’re very excited to finally reveal the 2016 programme for Bloody Scotland which is now in its 5th year! Just a little of what’s to come…

  • We welcome back familiar Scottish crime writing favourites including Ian Rankin, Chris Brookmyre, Val McDermid, Stuart MacBride, Alex Gray, Craig Robertson, Lin Anderson and more.
  • International crime writing is explored with Yrsa Sigurgardóttir, Melanie Raabe, Agnes Ravatn and Erik Axl Sund.
  • Brooke Magnanti (aka Belle de Jour) and Helen Fitzgerald discuss where crime and sex collides online.
  • The unstoppable MC Beaton will be in conversation with Fred McAulay.
  • We delve deep into criminal science and sociology with James Grieve, Marjorie Turner, Lorna Dawson, Dr Al Dowie, Dr Margaret McCartney and more.
  • We also welcome Nicci French, Martina Cole, Mark Billingham, Craig Russell, Mason Cross and many, many more.
  • The reveal of 2016 Crime Book of the Year winner.
  • The Val McDermid Escape Room in Stirling’s Thistles Shopping Centre will test your sleuthing wits.
  • And, of course, it wouldn’t be Bloody Scotland without our annual Scotland v England football match!

This only scrapes the surface of what we have to offer this year so make sure to check out the entire programme on our events page.

We look forward to seeing you in September!
