Faclan: the Hebridean Book Festival is one of An Lanntair’s flagship cultural events. Each autumn it draws audiences and top-level authors and performers from all across the UK.

Faclan 2019 will run from Wednesday 30 October to Saturday 2 November. This year’s theme is Human Nature and the festival will feature extraordinary tales of humanity and landscape, including: Niall Iain Macdonald on his two dramatic solo attempts to row across the Atlantic; Dan Richards on his new book Outpost: A Journey to the Wild Ends of the Earth; land artist Julie Brook on the philosophy behind her dramatic, elemental sea fire-stacks; a celebration of the life, photography and film of the American anthropologist Margaret Fay Shaw; and much more.

The festival will open on 30 October with Soil and Soul, an exclusive showcase for Alan Bissett‘s new theatre adaptation of Alastair McIntosh‘s acclaimed Lewis-set book. The event will consist of a script in hand performance by a cast of five – to be announced soon – followed by a discussion event with the whole creative team.

Festival Passes are now on sale, priced £60. Please note that festival passes do not include Ghillie Başan’s Faclan Fringe lunch event on Friday.
