Posted by

We’re thrilled to announce the programme for Durham Book Festival 2022 with headline guests including LJ Ross, Marina Hyde, Jeremy Vine, Alexander McCall Smith, Kit de Waal, Hannah Lowe, Fiona Hill, Richard O’Neill and the announcement of the Gordon Burn Prize.

Between 13 and 16 October 2022, join us as the festival returns to Durham’s Millennium Place, illuminating the Gala Theatre and Clayport Library with leading writers, artists and thinkers.  

We have an array of talks, workshops, readings and performances, as well as new commissions, films, walks and unique experiences. In 2022, we are inviting people to take part in the festival in a range of ways. You can attend events in-person at Gala Theatre and Clayport Library or remotely by live stream. You can pick up free books as part of the Big and Little Read initiatives, borrow festival titles from County Durham libraries, and read, watch and listen to a range of free digital content.  

We really hope you can join us this October – find our full programme here
