Make a Donation

Whilst we welcome Patrons, we are not able to claim Gift Aid on membership. Gift Aid allows UK charities to claim back the basic rate tax already paid on donations by the donor. This means we can claim from the government 25p for every £1 donated, boosting the value of a donation by a quarter. If you are happy just to make a donation, however small, please let us know.

Thank you very much for your support.

Since 2008, we have brought together top authors and bright young talent, providing a programming mix that offers the weight and authority of established writers with the passion and enthusiasm of those whose names are just beginning to be known. And bigger and more successful than ever, we look forward to the years ahead.

We can offer an exciting opportunity for your brand to be part of something great; something which is both at the heart of the community and a major event in the entire region.
