Wigtown Book Festival is celebrating its 20th birthday this year, a landmark that would never have been reached without support from our friends.


This year’s festival will be a special celebration and we hope that you might consider becoming a Friend in 2018. The cost this year is just £20 to celebrate 20 years. The benefits for becoming a Friend are:

  • A copy of the programme by first class post as soon as it arrives from the printer in early August
  • An invitation to the Opening Party on Friday 21 September
  • And, for one year only, 20% off all ticket bookings to Festival events (excluding those promoted for other organisations)


You could also become a Friend for Life for the cost of just £250. You’ll receive the same benefits as above, plus a pair of complimentary tickets every year.


You can become a Friend by visiting our online shop here, completing and returning this form or by calling the Festival team on 01988 403222.


We hope that you’ll consider supporting us this year and that you’ll join us to celebrate two decades of the Festival this September.
