Portobello Book Festival was started by a group of local people who are interested in books and wanted to share their enthusiasm. It takes place each year over the first full weekend in October.

The next  Festival will take place 5-7 October 2018. 

Our festival is based on the principle that everything is free and nobody is paid. That has been possible, partly, because of our fruitful collaboration with the local library, where many of the events are held.
Events take place in various venues, and we try to make sure there is something for everyone.

If you have ideas or would like to be involved in organising the festival next year, please leave your name at the Library or email: portobellobookfestival@gmail.com
