February 23 - February 26
Granite Noir is inspired by the incredible popularity of crime fiction in all its forms, by the fantastic contribution that Scottish writers make, by their love affair with Nordic Noir, on the page and on screen, and most of all inspired by Aberdeen, which is the perfect backdrop for the festival – steeped in history, atmospheric, quirky and with a strong sense of place.
It’s their pleasure to bring you a fantastic programme of noir writing in unusual places and spaces across the city, from our lively festival hub at the Lemon Tree to the newly restored Cowdray Hall and the atmospheric St Nicholas Kirk. We can’t wait to explore the darkness within and around us with fascinating authors from near and far.
