Event Details

The Further From Festival is back and bigger than ever before! Now entering its fourth year, for 2019 we’ve extended the programme to cover two weekends: there are just so many exciting authors coming along!

Join Christopher Fleet of the National Library of Scotland as he explores the history of Scotland through its maps. His latest book, Scotland: Defending the Nation is a 2018 Christmas bestseller. Scotland has had a uniquely important military history over the last five centuries, which has all resulted in significant cartographic activity. Christopher has also co-authored Scotland: Mapping the Nation, Edinburgh: Mapping the City and Scotland: Mapping the Islands.

All events will take place in three venues across Linlithgow: Queen Margaret Hall, Far From The Madding Crowd and the beautifully renovated St Peter’s Church.   Tickets £10. Weekend and day passes are available and further information can be found at our website
