Friends of the Book Festival

The Friends of the Book Festival enjoy a number of benefits, including advance booking for a specified number of tickets to events.

To ensure that our Friends get the most out of their membership we limit the number of memberships in any one year.

We are currently at capacity and cannot accept new Friends but please keep checking this page for future updates.

If you are already a Friend of the Book Festival and want to renew your membership, please do so using your renewal form, or by calling Gerard Mehigan on 0131 718 5653.

If you would like to support our educational outreach work and help us improve the facilities in Charlotte Square Gardens, where the Book Festival takes place every year, please consider becoming a Patron.

*Please note
It is our policy to ensure that some tickets will always be available for members of the general public when the box office opens on the first day of public booking. The number of tickets available to Friends during advance booking is therefore limited and all tickets are subject to availability.
