Friends Membership

Become a Friend of the Appledore Book Festival and enjoy some great benefits. 

Join us and help support one of Devon’s best-loved cultural festivals and, in doing so, help us continue to deliver an exciting and diverse programme of literary, artistic  and cultural events.

Being a Friend of the Appledore Book Festival offers you:

  • An advance copy of the Festival programme and notifications of forthcoming events;
  • Priority advance booking: 1 week ahead of general public sales.  During the priority booking week, we limit tickets to 2 per Friend per event.
  • Invitations to exclusive events as well as pop up events;
  • Discount on books at the Appledore Book Festival (when you present your membership voucher);
  • Regular newsletters.

Like so many literary festivals, we find ourselves in uncertain and extremely challenging times. As a charity, we need your support to help secure the Festival for future generations to enjoy. Annual membership is just £20 and being a Friend is a great way to support the Appledore Book Festival.

For more information, please email: friends@appledorebookfestival.co.uk



Why not purchase Appledore Book Festival Gift Vouchers or Friends Gift Membership for your friends and family?  Gift vouchers can be redeemed against event tickets and pop-up events and have an 18-month expiry date. Alternatively, they can be used to purchase Friends Membership.

Both Gift Vouchers and Gift Membership are another great way to support the Festival.  For more information click this link.
