We regret to announce that Derby Reads is cancelled.
Like all UK event organisers, Derby Book Festival is having to make plans in response to the Coronavirus pandemic.
Due to Government advice issued yesterday, we have reluctantly decided to cancel our 2020 programme launch, Derby Reads, which was scheduled for Wednesday 8 April at QUAD.
The Derby Book Festival team is very disappointed to have to make this decision as we had a great programme launch event planned. We are keeping plans for the Festival itself under review and will inform all our audiences, guests, volunteers, partners and other stakeholders of any further changes to our 2020 plans as quickly as we can.
