Mountains to Sea dlr Book Festival

Saturday March 27th & Sunday March 28th 2021

Welcome to Mountains to Sea dlr Book Festival 2021. We invite you to meet our guests from the comfort of your own home. 

When we entered 2020, no-one could have predicted the reality that was to come. Certain years are so eventful they are regarded as pivotal in history and this past year will certainly join this list. As we continue to expect the unexpected in 2021, we are learning to be ‘Of The Moment’ because…well…what else is there? Each of our guest authors is Of The Moment in his or her individual way and we look forward to sharing these particular moments with you at Mountains to Sea dlr Book Festival 2021.

Tickets are onsale now.  Read some useful information about accessing our Online events here.
