Plan Your Visit



The Festival Bookshop at St Mary’s Hall, is sponsored and managed by Waterstones and will be open daily from 11.00am until after the last talk. Authors will be in the bookshop after their event where signed books can be purchased.  Occasionally book signings will take place in event venue for ease but this will be clearly announced after the event talk.  Friends of Appledore Book Festival also receive a 10% discount on any purchases made in the Festival shop, just show the Waterstones team your membership card.


There will be a Book Fair on Sunday 22nd September 10.30am in Appledore Community Hall. Secondhand books are also available at Walter’s Emporium in Myrtle Street and Uncle Wainwrights on The Quay.  We are also delighted to welcome Edward Gaskell to Appledore and are thrilled to have his independent bookshop open in our village selling a range of second-hand and new books for our community to enjoy.
