What do Gordon Brown, Limmy and Margaret Atwood have in common? They all appeared at the Edinburgh International Book Festival recently, along with over 1000 authors and speakers from around the world including Haruki Murakami, Jesse Jackson, Clare Balding, Zadie Smith, Ian Rankin, Reginald D Hunter, Jenni Murray, Paul Auster and Prue Leith.                                 

Sponsor an author event and you and your guests will have a unique Book Festival experience.

Soak up the magical atmosphere in Charlotte Square Gardens by holding a reception in one of our wonderful hospitality spaces either before or after your sponsored event.

You and your guests will be escorted to priority seating reserved for you at the front of the theatre and, once inside the event, your branding will be in full view of the entire audience.

With VIP treatment from start to finish, a sponsored author event is an occasion your guests will want to come back to year after year.
