In 2020, due to Covid-19, Durham Book Festival will take place online. The festival traditionally takes place in and around the beautiful city of Durham each October.
Durham Book Festival: 9-18 October 2020
Welcome to Durham Book Festival 2020 Online. We’re delighted to present our first ever digital programme and hope you’ll sign up to watch one of our free events between 9-18 October.
Going digital this year has enabled us to connect with writers from all over the world, as well as celebrating home-grown talent and we hope you’ll find something to entertain and inspire you.
We will be streaming our video content on Crowdcast (check out our FAQs here). Although most of our content has been pre-recorded, we hope you’ll enjoy chatting with fellow festival visitors via the chat function as well as using #DBF20 on social media. You can buy books from Waterstones by following the affiliate links under each event, which help support the festival.
