LIST OF BOOK FESTIVALS in UK and Ireland

I compiled this list after struggling to find a comprehensive index of book festivals in the UK and Ireland online, hoping that it will eventually contain  every book festival.  To make the list more manageable, I haven't included any poetry-only festivals, festivals dedicated to one author, festivals where literature is only a peripheral part of the event, or festivals not active since 2020. ** Festivals are now sorted chronologically, from the current month. **

TBC - To be confirmed. TBA - To be announced.

If you know of any festival that hasn’t been included, message me on social media or email me at alanjonesbooks@gmail.com.

Feel free to share this list or use it as you see fit, but I'd appreciate being credited, and it would be great if you could take a look round my website while you’re here, or have a glance at my blog.

Many thanks to everyone who has sent in festival information. Special thanks must go to @Scotbookfests and @LitScotland for their Scottish book festival lists, and Eoghan Egan for sending me his list of Irish festivals, all of which were an immense help.
