Support London's Leading Literary Festival

Wimbledon BookFest is not-for-profit arts and education charity and depends on its supporters. Like many other arts organisations and festivals we are now deeply concerned about our future. Our costs, including our small team of dedicated staff, office and festival site set-up are upfront and throughout the year to produce the festival. Approximately half of our income usually comes from ticket sales. We heavily rely on sponsors, grants, friends and donations.

The Festival started 15 years ago with events across Wimbledon partnering with other community organisations. With your support we have gone on to be recognised as one of the UK's leading literary festivals hosting more than 100 events each year with audiences of 20,000+, as well as 10,000 South London schoolchildren, every year.

So many of the leading names from the world of literature, arts, politics, sport & entertainment have wowed audiences over the years including Ian McEwan, AS Byatt, Emily Maitlis, Sebastian Faulks, Graham Norton, Maggie O'Farrell, Sir John Major, Simon Armitage, Salman Rushdie, Shane Warne, Trevor McDonald, Michael Morpurgo, George the Poet, Malorie Blackman, Ben Okri and the Wombles.

We want to be continue to deliver Wimbledon BookFest for the public, as well as continuing to deliver our year round education projects and writing competitions.

With thanks
