CITY-WIDE LITERATURE FESTIVAL RETURNS
Portsmouth BookFest returns again with another packed programme of literary talks, events and more. The 2020 Festival starts on Monday 17th February and tickets are now on sale HERE.
BookFest aims to promote both book buying and book borrowing especially amongst groups who may not have previously considered participating in book related events. BookFest uses a wide variety of venues, many not normally associated with book events such as sports centres, museums, night clubs and pubs as well as libraries and community centres.
Portsmouth BookFest is jointly organised by Portsmouth City Library Service and The Hayling Island Bookshop. There is an associated schools programme organised by Portsmouth School Library Service. BookFest offers incentives to our audiences to sign up and join the Library Service as new members and we keep ticket prices low to make the events accessible to all sections of the community.
If you want to see the HUGE list of events, see the programme for 2020 HERE.
