Welcome to the Appledore Book Festival 2022

Following the overwhelming success of our 2021 festival, we are thrilled to confirm that our 2022 literary festival will be taking place, in and around Appledore, between 15 and 24 September.  Once again, we will be welcoming some of the greatest names from the world of literature, broadcasting and media.   We will also be running various workshops, children's activities, musical evenings and exclusive 'Friends of the Festival' events.

Last year many of our events were sold out within days of tickets going on sale.  It was a wonderful festival and we were, once again, blessed with some fabulous good weather.  If you would like to take a look at some of events that took place in 2021, see our video below, or visit our 2021 Gallery.

We are delighted that writer, poet and TV and film producer Henry Normal will be appearing at The Plough Arts Centre on Friday 25 February 2022 at 8pm.  An evening of pure escape with stories, jokes and poems, Henry's event will feature his favourite poems from his BBC Radio 4 series and his seven poetry collections.  Discounted tickets available for Friends of the Appledore Book Festival.  For more information please visit The Plough Arts Centre website.

AGM.  The Festival's Annual General Meeting is scheduled to be held at 7.00pm on Monday 7 February 2022 at Appledore Community Hall, EX39 1LU.  If you would like more information or are unable to attend but would like to ask a question, then please contact us at one of these email addresses by using this link.
