Welcome to Derby Book Festival
The first Derby Book Festival included 64 events and activities, 36 venues, over 3000 tickets sold, over 10,000 participants, 14 sold out events and 98% of feedback rated events as Excellent or Good.
The Festival would not have happened without the support of all the arts and educational organisations in the city as well as businesses, sponsors and volunteers. We feel we can safely say it has been a success!
The Festival celebrates the joy of books and the pleasure and power of reading and aims to inspire a new generation of readers. It welcomes internationally celebrated, best-selling authors as well as a broad range of local writing talent and has an exciting educational programme.
