Become a Friend

Become a Bath Literature Festival Friend!

Bath Children’s Literature Festival can only continue each year with the generous support we receive from our friends and sponsors. If you love the Festival like we do, please show your support by becoming a Friend. This year, to increase the benefits available to our supporters we have combined the membership schemes of our two literature festivals into one Bath Festivals Literature Members’ scheme so you will be a member of both Bath Literature Festival and Bath Children’s Literature Festival.

Your support also enables us to deliver the largest outreach Learning & Participation programme of any festival organisation. Last year we worked with 500+ educators and 4,500+ young people, developing young people’s confidence & creativity.

Enjoy. Save. Support.
