01 Apr 2020 COVID-19 Statement
Todmorden Book Festival would like to thank everyone for their continued support of the Festival. We don’t know how the pandemic will affect us over the coming months, but we will keep you informed of any developments about the Festival in 2021.
Todmorden Book Festival 2020’s digital programme was a small triumph. This year’s events were a departure from our annual programme of live events, which allowed us to reach new audiences around the world. We hope to bring you an exciting programme of events again in November 2021. In the meantime, please keep checking our website and social media for any updates.
We are delighted to report that online library membership has increased by 600% across parts of the UK since the first lockdown began, and we would urge all our friends and supporters to continue to support their local libraries by accessing digital library resources and visiting your local library when it reopens. You can buy and order books for home delivery from the Festival’s official bookseller The Book Case bookcasehebden.wordpress.com.
