We are delighted to announce the programme for our third festival, on Friday 26th and Saturday 27th May 2017. Please take advantage of our Early Bird ticket offers, running through until 1st May. 

We hope you will be able to join us at our stunning Thameside site to hear some of the freshest voices in contemporary writing, engage in debates and delight your children with our exciting range of author events and hands-on workshops. For 2017, we will also be improving our food and drink offer with streetfood vans provided by some of the most popular vendors at Greenwich Market.

A couple more events are still to be added, so please follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram or return here, for updates.

A huge thank you to everyone who makes the Greenwich Book Festival possible – our visiting authors, our audience, and especially to the University of Greenwich, the Old Royal Naval College and Royal Borough of Greenwich.

Volunteering Opportunities

We are looking for a team of volunteers to help us both in the run up to the festival and during the two-day event itself. Volunteers play a crucial role in the smooth running of the Greenwich Book Festival so we need enthusiastic, helpful people who will be able to perform myriad jobs with aplomb! If you are interested, please email us at greenwichbookfestival@gmail.com and we will send you more information. Thank you!
