Our Crowdfunder

Can you help us do something amazing?

As we celebrate our 5th birthday, we believe the best possible response in these difficult times is to make the 2020 Stroud Book Festival free and accessible to all.

We were very fortunate to receive an emergency Arts Council grant, to cover our Festival running costs. 

However, we still have a hole in our budget, the money we need to produce and broadcast our programme of events and make them FREE to everyone.

So this year, we have decided to ask our audiences for help. We’ve created a fundraising campaign using a platform called Crowdfunder and we are attempting to raise £10,000 to cover the costs of producing the programme.

To thank you for your support we have arranged a fantastic selection of rewards, including VIP Tickets to Stroud Book Festival 2021 and personalised reading recommendations.

Please be as generous as you are able, we appreciate every donation.

You can also show your support by spreading the word about this campaign on Facebook and Twitter, and by telling your friends and contacts.

Help us make Stroud fizz with the joy of books and reading this autumn.

Thank you! 

Love, Stroud Book Festival X

Stroud Book Festival relies on funding and donations.

If you can help us with a donation, however small, you will be doing your bit to keep the Festival going and we will be very grateful. We are committed to bringing you the best of local, national and international authors, illustrators and literary figures each year.

Because we are a small, dedicated, part-time team, mostly of volunteers, working on a very tight budget, we really do value every penny that comes our way.

If you could consider supporting the Festival through sponsorship or more regular funding, then please get in touch Thank you for your support.
