BLOODY SCOTLAND INTERNATIONAL CRIME WRITING FESTIVAL 2020 CANCELLED BUT EXPLORING OPTIONS FOR GOING AHEAD ON SAME DATES ONLINE
We are very sad to announce that Bloody Scotland will not be taking place in Stirling this year due to the global Coronavirus pandemic. The safety of our team, participants and audiences is paramount and even if social distancing restrictions are lifted by September we feel we cannot proceed as normal without knowing safety can be absolutely assured.
Though we will miss celebrating the finest local and international crime writing at the festival, we hope to bring you a taste of that classic Bloody Scotland atmosphere in the form of online events which we are currently in the process of costing and plotting.
Festival Director, Bob McDevitt said:
‘I'm absolutely gutted that we won't be gathering in Stirling this year for our annual shindig but I am looking forward to finding some new and innovative ways to bring some fantastic crime writers into your living rooms. See you all in 2021 for our 10th anniversary!’
