Join us for an evening of literature and music at the 2019 Gordon Burn Prize ceremony, as we showcase the six shortlisted books and announce this year’s winner. Including a special musical  performance by acclaimed folk group, The Unthanks.

The Gordon Burn Prize celebrates exploratory, innovative and questioning works of fiction and narrative non-fiction that challenge convention and defy categorisation. The winning writer will be awarded £5000 and the chance to spend a month’s retreat at

Gordon Burn’s cottage in the Scottish Borders. The 2019 judges are the crime writer AA Dhand; Turner Prize-nominated artist Gary Hume; journalist and writer Miranda Sawyer; and the musician Rachel Unthank.
