Durham Book Festival is a Durham County Council event produced by New Writing North and is part of Durham County Council’s exciting festivals programme.
The festival takes place in and around the beautiful city of Durham each October (13 - 16). This year the festival will take place at Gala Theatre and Clayport Library. All events will be live-streamed so if you are unable to make it to Durham City, you can also watch from home.
Every year the Durham Book Festival invites a range of thinkers, writers and performers to appear. Events at previous festivals have included appearances from Philip Pullman, Bill Bryson, Pat Barker, Jung Chang, PD James and Simon Armitage.
The announcement of the Gordon Burn Prize takes place at the festival each year and is fast becoming one of the UK’s most exciting literary prizes. This prize honours the late North East author and journalist Gordon Burn and seeks to reward writers who embody the spirit of Burn’s own bold and innovative literary methods.
