NEWS: The 2020 Robert Graves Poetry Prize is now open for entries.


Like many other arts organisations & festivals we are worried about our future.


Wimbledon BookFest is now in an emergency situation and as is common in the arts world, has no reserves. We are seeking to raise £25k from the community. With your support we have become London's leading literary event based in the community, with public audiences of 20,000+ and over 8,000 school children attending each year.

Please help our work continue for the community so we can cross the bridge to deliver culture beyond Covid-19.


Whether DIGITAL or LIVE, we very much hope to run both a public festival and an education programme in autumn 2020. We are working hard with our delivery partners, publishers and authors to develop a flexible model. working with and beyond Covid-19.
