Stroud Book Festival 2018: 7th-11th November

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.

We’ll share more news about the Festival line-up as soon as have it!

In the meantime if you enjoyed last year’s festival and would like to donate to help us put on this year’s festival, please use the “Support Us” image below, or if you’d like to get involved with this year’s planning by volunteering, we’d love to have you on board. For information about volunteering please see the Get Involved page.

If you would like to see the wider range of events we had on in 2018, take a look at last year’s brochure by clicking on the “2018 Programme” image below.

We look forward to welcoming you to Stroud Book Festival 2019.
