The 2015 Chiswick Book Festival enjoyed record ticket sales and great feedback. As a result, we we were able to donate £2,500 to each of our three reading charities, who will also benefit from this year’s Festival:

The Festival, a non-profit-making, community event, has raised over £50,000 for reading charities and St Michael & All Angels Church (which hosts and runs the Festival) over the past seven years.

We are now looking forward to this year’s Festival, which will take place from Thursday September 15th to Monday 19th. If you would like to discuss sponsorship, please contact Torin Douglas. To discuss volunteering or other issues, please contact Jill Sinclair, the Festival administrator.
