Join us for our Takeover Day at Derby College when you can buy a Day Pass to watch seven events (excluding the Writing Workshops and Festival Book Quiz) or choose individual event tickets. Derby College has a FREE, large car park available to people attending Festival events. The car park is located off the roundabout between the College campus and the train station. Security will be on hand to raise the barrier.

How to book your events:

We have planned the Takeover Day so that it is possible to attend all the events during the day. You must book for each event you want to attend with the Pass as we cannot guarantee tickets will still be available when you arrive on the day.

We will send you a booking form so you can book your events on Takeover Day direct with us, please do not book them on the website. If you have any questions or queries, please email:

Please send us your booking form as early as possible but by at least one week before (Friday 22 May) the Festival starts.

You can choose from the following list:

  • Sunday Papers
  • Abigail Dean: Day One
  • Louise Mullany: Polite
  • Helen Mort & Sarah Lister: Celebrating Kinder Scout
  • Bridget Collins: The Silence Factory
  • Wendy Moore: Jack and Eve
  • Meet the Observer Debuts: Jessica Moor & Tom Lamont

Please note: tickets for the Festival Quiz and all Writing Workshops must be booked separately as they are not included in the Takeover Day pass.
