Welcome! The seventh North Cornwall Book Festival was a rain-splashed, packed-out joy. If you weren’t lucky enough to be there, or simply want to revisit it, go to our Podcasts page and you can hear many of the talks there.

The 2020 festival runs from October 1-4. The full programme will be revealed on July 1st 2020 when booking will also open. Join our mailing list now in order to not miss out.

Like every festival, we rely heavily on volunteer person-power for everything from putting up posters or helping direct traffic to checking tickets and looking after authors. We’re especially interested to hear from volunteers who would be available for two of three days before the festival and from volunteers with special skill sets to offer throughout the year, like social media or IT. If you’d like to become involved please use our contact page to let us know.
