Tickets are now on sale for Durham Book Festival!

This year we present our biggest programme yet, featuring a wide variety of events from Booker Prize-winners to some famous faces; family workshops to live performance.

In these uncertain times, a book festival is a shared place where we can contemplate some of the big ideas and events that are shaping our world, as well as be inspired by wonderful literature to lift the spirits. We hope you can come and join the conversation with us.
