Help us make Essex Book Festival bigger & better in 2021. More books. More stories. More walks, talks & big conversations.
From 1st November to 13th December 2020 we are running our crowdfunder campaign – #BackWithABang. Donate today to support your festival.
Why are we fundraising?
This year, due to Covid-19, we had to cancel our festival 11 days before the end. To say that we were disappointed doesn’t begin to express how we felt.
However, we consider ourselves the lucky ones. Thanks to exceptional support from friends and partners, plus an Emergency Grant from Arts Council England, the show is still on the road for 2021.
The size of the show hangs in the balance and will depend on support from our funders and kind donations from others.
Take a look at our plans for 2021, some of the highlights from past festivals and how your donations will be used by visiting our crowdfunder page.
