We depend on the support of so many businesses, individuals, Festival Friends and our army of volunteers to create such a special Festival
Our year-round Community Programme involves book-related activities with groups and individuals across the city
Our Festival includes over 100 book-related events & activities in June and at our Autumn Edition with some of our most celebrated authors
There are lots of ways to get involved: become volunteer, a Festival Friend, a sponsor or make a donation.
The Festival is a charity and our funding comes from grants, sponsors and ticket sales. We would also welcome your donations
We could not run the Festival without the generous support of our arts & educational partners, local businesses and individuals
We couldn’t run the Festival without our fantastic volunteers who support events, engage with our guests and represent the Festival
As a Festival Friend you will enjoy benefits such as priority bookings, regular e-shot and special events throughout the year
