Any other booking arrangements are listed under the event.
This year we are offering a Festival Pass for the Takeover Day at Déda on Sunday 2 June. This costs £25 and includes entry to all the events on that day at Déda (excluding the Festival Book Quiz). You must book for each event you want to attend with the pass as we cannot guarantee tickets will be available on the day. You can also book each event individually.
You will be able to collect your tickets from the venue that you have bought them from, or some venues will offer a postal service if you prefer.
Please Note: Tickets are non-refundable or exchangeable, unless an event is cancelled.
On the day
Please arrive in good time for the event. Seating in the majority of venues is first come, first served. We reserve the right to deny entry to any latecomers.
Most Festival events last approximately one hour, with a 45 minute author talk/interview and reading, followed by a 15 minute Q&A with the audience. At most events we have a book stall plus author signing after the event.
We're delighted to be working with Communication Unlimited to present BSL integrated events. For every event where we are providing an interpreter you'll find this logo: (S LOGO) If there is an event you would like to attend but an interpreter is not listed, please do email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact Communication Unlimited directly. We will attempt to provide an interpreter if possible. Derby Book Festival takes place in several venues across the city, each with different facilities and access provisions. We make every effort to ensure that our events are accessible. You can find further information on the websites of each of our partners or directly through the box office.
