Become a BookFest Patron!
BookTastic Children’s Book Festival has evolved into something at the heart of the local community. Last year saw an incredible response to our ‘Pay It Forward’ programme, making the festival accessible to a much wider range of families. Our supporters are willing to ‘walk the walk’, making BookFest the inclusive, inspiring event that is has become.
This year, we want to show how much we appreciate that support. By becoming a Festival patron, you will get more than a warm, fuzzy feeling. BookTastic Patrons will be recognised as part of the team that makes the magic happen – bringing authors and illustrators to Bedford, helping to inspire a generation of readers and writers, and to sustain Bedford’s growing cultural agenda.
As a Patron, your name will be featured in the programme, in recognition of your contribution to the festival’s continued growth. You get Priority Booking for all events, with 25% off all ticket prices, and Priority Queuing to the events of your choice. You will receive all the news about this year’s BookFest before it is released to the public, and you will be invited to the celebratory closing party.
An annual Patron Membership costs*:
£40 for a single membership
£70 for a couples’ membership
Thank you, Bedford, for helping to create a children’s book festival that we are truly proud of. To find out more about becoming part of the story, email firstname.lastname@example.org
