Appledore Book Festival
The Appledore Book Festival is one of the largest cultural festivals in Devon.
Due to the current situation with COVID-19 and social distancing government guidelines, the traditional nine-day Festival has been rearranged to a five-day Drive-In Festival.
It will still showcase some world-renowned authors from across the UK, but unfortunately will not be running the Fringe Festival alongside the various author events.
This year’s events features the well-known faces of Richard Osman, Kate Humble, Jeremy Vine, Dr Micheal Moseley… and many more and influential authors and celebrities.
A Drive-In Festival provides a safe environment while in the comfort of your own car. Audiences will be able to watch and listen to amazing authors discussing their latest book, live from the Appledore Book Festival stage, with sound being transmitted via FM radio. There will be an opportunity to put questions to the author, plus snacks and refreshments can be ordered prior to the event and served direct to your car. You’ll even be able to purchase signed books, by contactless payment.
Whether you want to be inspired, entertained or just share a picturesque field with some of the best creative talents of our time, then come and join us at our Drive-In Festival, at Skern Lodge Appledore, from the 18 to 22 September. There really is something for everyone.
