Granite Noir will return in February 2021 as an online festival.

Aberdeen’s Crime Fiction festival, Granite Noir will return online in February 2021.

A celebration of the best of home grown and international crime writing, the festival, like many others, has decided to go digital as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

The programme will offer both live and pre-recorded author conversations, panel discussions, creative workshops and events for young people and will run from February 19 – 21 2021.

All events will be free to view and the full programme will be announced in the New Year.

Aberdeen Performing Arts Chief Executive, Jane Spiers, said: “This has been a challenging year not only for live events, but also for the publishing industry.

“Granite Noir is a showcase for the very best in Scottish and international crime writing and also for the city of Aberdeen, and we wanted to follow on from the tremendous success of the 2020 Festival, even if we can’t welcome live audiences to our venues.

“We are looking forward to announcing a vibrant and exciting digital programme in January and welcoming audiences, albeit virtually, from all over the world to celebrate thrilling, murderous and mysterious crime fiction, in all its forms, with us.”


Full programme details for Granite Noir 2021 will be announced in the New Year and details can be found at www.granitenoir.com.
