We were so delighted to meet Jennifer Saunders, she was a total hoot and joy to meet! Thanks so much for coming to the Borders Jennifer!
Quite simply brilliant, and he definitely had the audience who'd come the furthest! Folks from Italy, Spain and Yorkshire to name a few!
Steve gets the prize for the largest mix of ages in the audience - from 7 year olds to 70 year olds, he was truly inspiring and signed a LOT of books!
The Scott Prize authors on the stage with Kirsty discussing their books and the genre.
The most obliging guest ever, he posed for selfies and even helped with the dishes! Oh, and his event was pretty special too!
What a line-up of actors, thank you all for descending on Melrose to give us such a special event - The Duke of Buccleuch with the cast and musicians of Waverley
Steve Hartley returned to Melrose for a second time with the 'Giant Pants' and tried to break the record for 'the amount of people to fit into a pair of pants'! Wonder if he succeeded?
Normally we'd discourage mushrooms from growing on the lawn at Harmony, but this year they certainly added a bit of fun to the landscape!
Not to be outdone by the kids - the staff had a turn at breaking the giant pants record too!
Thanks to the gang who kept all the kids entertained and occupied over the weekend - good fun and new skills learned by all!
Happy faces at The Family Book Festival...
A very popular event, although he did leave the audience wondering what was the right thing to eat!
Not only did Rory host his own very funny event, but took on chairing duties as he chatted with his friends Nick Mason and Jennifer Saunders too.
What a way to wrap up the Festival, The Homecoming Scotland marquee was shaking with laughter on Sunday night thanks to Nina, Monkey, Grannie, Stefan the Builder and Nina’s other ‘victims’ providing the brilliant entertainment!
You go out for a stroll in Harmony Garden and look who you come across! Good job they had his book with them to sign!
John Sessions and Phyllida Law on the stage for the reading of Waverley.
Not everyday you have a former Prime Minister come to Melrose!
Some people might not recognise the face, but I bet you'd recognise the voice!
We were thrilled to meet Lynda La Plante, here she is with Cliff during her event.
You never know who you'll see sitting on the steps at Harmony!
Well the sun has set on another fabulous Brewin Dolphin Borders Book Festival...
The Borders Book Festival team hope you had a brilliant few days with us, and hope to see you all next year! The Festival dates are 11-14 June 2015
