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. 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’ll be able to buy books from Waterstones by following the links under each event. Once an event has been broadcast it will be available for you to view on our website until 1 November.
