This is Falmouth Book Festival's inaugural year.
Featuring a dynamic line-up of authors, poets and storytellers, it will take place throughout the town and sets out to celebrate all the things we’re most passionate about: books, sharing ideas, and bringing people together.
This year’s festival is brought to you by the team behind Port Eliot Festival’s celebrated literary stages and supported by Falmouth University, the Falmouth Bookseller and the Falmouth BID.
