Get involved

The Wigtown Book Festival is a charity and could not exist without the support of a huge number of volunteers and supporters.

More than 100 people generously give their time to the event, delivering brochures, working in the box office, decorating venues, driving authors and helping in a thousand other ways. It's one of the reasons that the festival has won the Arts & Business (Scotland) Community Award, a ScottishPower Foundation Award for Community Engagement and why Wigtown was declared Scotland's most creative small town in 2012.
