Beyond Borders International Festival: Traquair House, Scottish Borders

[24th – 25th August]

Celebrating its 10th anniversary, the Beyond Borders International Festival is returning this year to Traquair House, with a series of panel discussions and debates alongside an eclectic programme of art and music. Matching the Festival’s billing as the platform for international dialogue and cultural exchange, the programme’s highlights include New York Times photojournalism exhibitions Carbon’s Casualties and #ThisIs18, Kurdish poet Choman Hardi, and renowned composer Nigel Osborne, who takes guests on an internationally inspired promenade of sound and story.

A fascinating selection of international speakers and discussions in the Main Tent Programme is supported by a global Art and Music programme combining international artists and performers, with thought-provoking art exhibitions. Traquair House’s beautiful Walled Garden will host well-being activities such as meditation, yoga, cycle rides, a story-telling walk with local storyteller Mary Kenny, and a foraging walk taking in the scenery of the new footpath between Innerleithen and Traquair House with Fi Martynoga.
