The fourth Stroud Book Festival will take place from 6th to 10th November 2019. This year’s Festival will be headlined by Booker-winning author (and Stroud Book Festival patron) Ian McEwan, who will be in conversation about “Machines Like Me”. We are also delighted to welcome the one-and-only Julia Donaldson, author of “The Gruffalo”, “Stick Man” and many more, to headline the children’s programme.

Tickets will be on sale summer 2019 – please join our mailing list for updates.
