Tickets can be purchased in advance online through Eventbrite, or they are available on the door on the day of the event. To book an event please follow the "Online booking" links on the event of your choice.
A concessionary rate is available for students, registered unemployed, customers with disabilities and the over-60s. If you need a carer or helper to accompany you to any of the sessions, they will be allowed in free of charge.
All children’s events are free and under-16s attending any of the adult programme also get in for free (with parental permission).
2017 season ticket.
A 2017 season ticket is available to purchase via Eventbrite. A season ticket allows access to all 2017 book festival sessions, as well as the evening events, the 'Meet the authors' tea, and the Islay Voices guided walks.
*Please note: A 2017 season ticket does not include the writing or bookbinding workshops, for which places are very limited and so these need to be pre-booked separately. The season ticket also does not allow access to any of the school events, which are not open to the public.
The early bird promotion, allowing 10% off bookings made online before 31st July, has now ended.
