What to expect at the Book Festival
Over the last couple weeks, our team have been getting the Festival Village ready for your arrival. When you’re not enjoying events with writers, artists, and performers, there’s plenty of ways to spend your time on site. Entry to the Festival Village is free. Food and drink on site will include offerings from Social Bite, Prime Street Food, and ice cream from With a Cherry on Top. The ECA Café is now open and licensed until 10pm. You’re also welcome to bring your own picnic and relax on the grass.
Head to the Festival Bookshop to browse latest releases from authors at this year’s Festival and beyond. Brought to you by Waterstones, there’s something to satisfy everyone’s literary taste. After events, make sure to stop by the signing tent to have your book signed by your favourite authors in an intimate setting.
The Festival site and all venues are wheelchair friendly. We also have wheelchairs that you can borrow. We have sound enhancement systems in our three largest venues, and BSL and captions can be found in wide range of events. For more details on accessibility at the Festival, including information about our Quiet Space, Pay What You Can tickets, and accessible parking, visit here. If you have specific questions, get in touch with us at email@example.com, or visit our Welcome Cabin next to the Box Office.
