Books and boots, walks and words...
come and celebrate the 10th anniversary of our unique festival with nine days of book events and guided walks in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales.

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 at least 4 walks to choose from each day and features the route of the Swaledale Marathon; you can enjoy some of Swaledale's finest scenery at a more sedate pace.

The book programme features Edward Stourton and Alan Hinkes and a popular book fair held in Richmond's beautiful station.

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.
