How do I purchase tickets?

Tickets for individual events can be purchased directly from event venues via their online booking systems, or from the ticket office on the night of the event. If an event is live then clicking on its tile on this website will take you directly to its booking page.

How do I book tickets for the free Santander International School Programme events?

Tickets for school events can be reserved by emailing info@jerseyfestivalofwords.org. Places for any one event are limited to approximately 60 per school.

Will I be able to meet the authors?

While we cannot arrange personal meetings, every author will do a book signing after the event and it will be possible to say hello and purchase a personalised copy. Most events also feature a Q+A session, allowing you to ask a question directly.
