Support Us

In 2023, we celebrated 40 years since the first Book Festival took place in Edinburgh. Over the course of those four decades, the Edinburgh International Book Festival has grown and flourished but also evolved. However, what’s remained constant is our commitment to connect authors and audiences in exciting live events and conversations which celebrate creativity and ideas.
For 2024 we’re very much focussed on looking forward to the next chapter in the Book Festival’s story, as we move to our new home at the fantastic Edinburgh Futures Institute on Lauriston Place. We’d love you to join us in making more precious and memorable Book Festival moments there, this year and for many year to come. You can help us bring Book Festival joy both to those who love the Festival already and attend year after year, and also for a new generation of audiences of all ages and from all backgrounds.
