Books and boots, walks and words...
The Festival is held in the last week of September and sometimes the first few days of October
Our festival provides the opportunity for a fantastic break; combining day time walks led by knowledgeable guides, with evening talks from popular and emerging authors. You create your own programme; do as little or as much of either or both.
The Festival is centred on the lively and picturesque market town of Richmond which boasts everything you need to ensure a wonderful day or longer stay, whether a solo traveller or a group of friends.
Our walks programme offers several walks of different lenghths to choose from each day. You can enjoy some of Swaledale's finest scenery or take a town walk around Richmond at a more sedate pace.
See the full programme here; all tickets go on sale on 1st July and you can buy online, by post, or at the Festival box office.
