Berwick Literary Festival in 2022
Berwick Literary Festival is a volunteer-run event, supported by local sponsors and generous individual patrons, but without significant corporate funding. In 2020 and 2021 we ran our festivals on Zoom, free of charge, and our 2022 online events are again free to all. We also (unusually for a literary festival) arrange for the schools in our area a series of free enrichment activities for all ages, as detailed on our website.
We return this year to in-person speaker events, priced at the minimum to encourage attendance, not to generate a surplus. Our programming aims to create an engaging cross-section of topics and speakers, many with a focus on Northumberland and the Scottish Borders, rather than list celebrities or best-sellers.
We are very grateful for the generous support of donors in the last two years: your gifts meant that the Festival has returned for 2022 stronger and better-known. We hope you will support us again, to remain an independent and inventive festival.
Thank you very much
Chair, BLF Steering Group
