Visitor Guidelines & ongoing precautions against COVID-19

Festivals Cancelled

March 18, 2020

The Colonsay Tourism Group is sad to announce that, somewhat inevitably, we have had to cancel both the 2020 Colonsay Book and Spring Festivals.

Following the recent changes in Government approach and advice, it has become clear that trying to run these events whilst keeping our visitors, authors, experts and the local community safe, was simply not going to be possible.

This is a huge disappointment, as they were to be celebrations of, respectively, 9 and 10 years of delivering fantastic experiences here in our beautiful ‘Gem of the Sea’.

The organisers of both events will be working on similarly exciting programmes for next year, so get the dates in your diary!

Colonsay Book Festival 2021 - 24th & 25th April 2021

Colonsay Spring Festival 2021 - 26th April to 16th May 2021

In the meantime, our thanks for your support for our island and its festivals thus far, and our hope that you all keep safe and well.
