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. You can also now download our podcasts through iTunes, Stitcher and TuneIn.

The 2020 festival runs from October 1-4. The full programme will be revealed on July 1st 2020 when booking will also open and the 2019 slideshow above will be updated to feature this year’s speakers and performers. Join our mailing list now in order to not miss out. What better way to keep our morale up during the virus crisis than looking forward to the Autumn?

And don’t forget you can build up momentum for the next festival by joining our festival book club. Inevitably this will be happening online until further notice but we promise it will be lively. If you’d like more information, e mail Ronnie on bookclub@ncornbookfest.org.

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.
