Bloody Scotland – 2021 a year like no other
Stirling is opening its arms to the best of crime fiction writers next weekend with a festival set to be like no other. There’s going to be a real life festival happening in Stirling but there’s also a hybrid feel to things with the panels being beamed out across the world!

Val McDermid, Ian Rankin, Denise Mina, Chris Brookmyre, Alan Parks, Mark Billingham, Kia Abdullah and Louise Candlish to name but a few.
Pitch Perfect and Crime in the Spotlight
The Fun Lovin’ Crime Writers and a cabaret twist on the normal Quiz which will see each quizzer (Val McDermid, Chris Brookmyre, Doug Johnston, Mark Billingham, Luca Veste and Stuart Neville) performing a musical number.
The Red Hot Chilli Writers live!
Hosts of The Red Hot Chilli Writers, Vaseem Khan and Abir Mukherjee are at the pub. Well, the local pub the Golden Lion as that’s where they’re holding the podcast!
Two mega panels to look forward to:

Festival Director, Bob McDevitt says:
‘It’s going to be a Bloody Scotland like no other but we do love a challenge and I can’t wait to see all of our authors, and crime fans back together in real life while extending our global reach as we beam the festival all over the world.’
