Events are a big part of what we do at Mainstreet. From literary stars and debut authors, to cookery demos and wine tastings. Over the years, we’ve been lucky enough to host many of our literary heroes, from Margaret Atwood and Sebastian Barry to Michael Morpurgo and Cressida Cowell.

Many of our events are held in the barn and can only be accessed by stairs. Read our accessibility policy for more information.

I don’t often do this, but I really want to thank you for bringing two such interesting ladies [ Jodi Picoult & Jennifer Finney Boylan] to Mainstreet today. Such life stories and fierce intelligence. I don’t know how you do it, but the writers you gather are amazing and really enhance my experience of living in The Borders.
