MEMBER: Derby Book Festival

Derby Book Festival was first held in 2015. We have two great programmes of events each year. The main Festival, over nine days in late spring, includes around 80 events and the Autumn Edition has 10 events over three days.

The dates for our 2022 Festivals are:
Friday 20 May - Saturday 28th May
Autumn dates TBC

Our main Festival includes a programme of around 80 events across nine days to celebrate the joy of books and reading for all ages and interests with an eclectic mix of fiction and non-fiction.

There is something for everyone!
We have a strong community programme which includes our Shared Reading and Shared Writing projects which use books, words and poetry to support health and well-being. We work with a range of settings including care homes with groups organised in-person and online. We also work with young asylum seekers and refugees.

We have a strong schools programme working with primary and secondary schools in the city who join us for our annual Meet the Author events. We also organise the Derby Children's Picture Book Award each year and engage with Years 2 and 3 in primary schools.
