Box Office

Sadly, the Guernsey Literary Festival, scheduled to be held on 29 April to 3 May this year, has had to be cancelled because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. We took the decision to cancel because we had to put the health of our guest writers and speakers, audiences, helpers and volunteers above all else. Everyone involved in the planning of the event is so disappointed that we have had to take this decision, but we really had no choice.

All of you who have bought tickets – and we have sold thousands - will be refunded. Ben Fogle’s event on 8th October is still going ahead at this point in time.

Extraordinary circumstances such as this pandemic have serious financial consquences for us as a not-for-profit charity. We would be hugely grateful if you would choose to make a donation to secure the future of our festivals here:

We would like to thank you for your support of the Festival this year and in past years.

We will be back!
