Help us continue to grow: the Newcastle Writers Festival

Three weeks from our eighth festival, we made the decision to cancel the event due to the impact of COVID-19 and in order to protect the health and safety of our guest writers, audience, volunteers and staff.

It was a devastating decision but the right one. The fallout has been profound and we have lost our main source of revenue. Like so many organisations, we have had to make some tough decisions. We want to be here in 2021 and beyond, and we need your help.

If you bought tickets to this year’s event, please consider donating a portion of your refund. If you were considering buying tickets, we would welcome any contribution you can make given these challenging times.

We are working hard to navigate the year ahead and to ensure we can once again gather as a community to celebrate books and ideas. Thank you for your support.
