#NEWSFLASH Ashley Jensen star of the Agatha Raisin TV series – to appear at this year’s Bloody Scotland Festival

July 26, 2018
Last year one of the sell-out events at Bloody Scotland was Douglas Henshall, star of Shetland with Ann Cleeves, the author of the books which inspired the TV series.
This year Bloody Scotland  has revealed that success will be emulated with a similar celebrity TV / book pairing featuring Ashley Jensen, star of the TV series Agatha Raisin and well known for her roles in Ugly Betty, Extras and Nativity, who will be appearing on stage with M. C. Beaton author of the Agatha Raisin and Hamish Macbeth novels.
The event will take place on Saturday 22 September 7-8pm in the Albert Halls.
 

M C Beaton said: I am delighted that the brilliant Ashley Jensen will still be playing Agatha Raisin in the second series to appear on Sky Television in the autumn, three episodes of ninety minutes. I enjoy Bloody Scotland because the organisers are efficient while managing to make it a friendly, almost family occasion.

About Bloody Scotland
Bloody Scotland is Scotland’s International Crime Writing Festival, providing a showcase for the best crime writing from Scotland and the world, unique in that it was set up by a group of Scottish crime writers in 2012. The festival uses a number of atmospheric, historic venues in Stirling’s Old Town setting it apart from other literary festivals. Full information at www.bloodyscotland.com

Bloody Scotland is supported by the National Lottery through Creative Scotland’s Open Project Funding, Stirling Council,the Open University and Stirling University. Stirling Gin have remained a sponsor for a second year running and are kindly providing Bloody Scotland cocktails at both programme launches. Waterstone’s will once again be our festival bookseller and other sponsors include The Faculty of Advocates, The Sunday Times Crime Club, Headline Publishing and The Crime Vault We have also secured a number of new sponsors including H W Fisher who are specifically sponsoring the London launch and the green room during the Festival.

This year Bloody Scotland coincides with a number of other Scottish literary festivals, why not take the opportunity to move on from Stirling to the infamous Wigtown Book Festival which runs until 30 September.
