Bude-Stratton Town Council has agreed to support a second year for Bude Literary Festival: Thursday 18 – Sun 21 May 2023.

Organiser, Richard Wolfenden-Brown, has started booking events, workshops and competitions. This year, some ‘fringe’ events at other local venues will be added.

The Festival Office will be in the Library rather the The Castle and lots of volunteer ‘bookworms’ will be needed for a range of tasks including stewarding events, meeting the authors, running raffles, driving artists round schools, running the festival office, help with book signings, assisting with programming ideas, etc ,etc. 

There will be a 1hr meeting at 11am on Sat 19 Nov at The Castle, for anyone interested.
