This year will see Appledore host our biggest festival line up yet with over 70 events including literary legends, inspirational celebrities, screenwriters, chefs, poets, musicians, artists and some fantastic workshops.

Our full 2017 Festival line-up was announced on Friday 14th July 2017 and our priority booking period for Friends of Appledore Book Festival is now open.  As a charity, we rely on the support of our Friends to provide necessary funds to enable us to stage this prestigious cultural event.  As a thank you we give our Friends a ten day priority period to book a maximum of two tickets per event.  Ticket sales will open to the general public on the 24th July 2017.
