Festival Friends

Our aim as a charity is to take authors and illustrators into schools across East Devon to inspire children and help them to grow a love of books and reading which will stay with them for the rest of their lives. Good literacy and well-being go hand in hand, and it is our ambition to make sure children have the best possible access to great books and writing.

We reply on the support of Friends to help us deliver this outreach programme to schools, and we warmly invite you to become a Friend and support our work.

Three categories of membership:
Single - £15 per year
Joint£25 per year for a couple living at the same address
Plus One - £25 per year which enables single members to acquire an advance ticket to an event for a close friend or relative.

There are many benefits to being a Friend:

  • Advance notification of the Festival programme
  • Priority booking for tickets for live events
  • An invitation to the Friends’ Reception in September
  • Early information on Festival news and events

Membership runs from 1st January – December 31st each year.
