Book Fest combo

This year’s Folkestone Book Festival opens with Louis de Bernières switching on the Christmas Lights. Once again you are invited to gather in the glowing warmth of the Quarterhouse to listen to stories and join in discussions, laugh, empathise and reflect.

A glittering array of speakers have responded to our invitation: Mark Billingham, Melvyn Bragg, Wendy Cope, Jonathan Dimbleby, HRH Princess Michael of Kent, Tony Juniper, Deborah Moggach, Tracey Thorn, Lynne Truss, Terry Wogan, and many more. And we are delighted to work with our new partners, Canterbury Christ Church University.

Come discover new writers from the community, bring the kids, journey into the past, go on a Trollope marathon, join our armchair tour of Italy, celebrate ageing gracefully, be mindful but above all enjoy!

Join us on 21 November, to hear Wendy Cope's poetry reading, a seditious but seriously good ironic moan about life’s little irritations.
