Membership Scheme

We know that Durham Book Festival has many friends and that each year it’s a date in your diaries as much as it is ours. This year we’re lucky that our funders have supported us to deliver a full digital programme that we’re very proud of. However, we are running the festival this year for free and will not generate any box office income; we are relying on donations and individuals to support the work and to see us through to next year when we hope to return to live events in Durham.

To help us strengthen the festival we are launching our very first membership scheme, so that those who wish to support us more deeply can do so and in turn benefit with some great incentives.

We have created a tiered scheme which allows 135 people to get involved at different levels:

• A full-sized bottle of delicious Durham Gin, so you can raise a glass at the Gordon Burn Prize
• A signed copy of the book that wins the Gordon Burn Prize

• Free access to the QI Quiz.
