To say that we’re excited about the next three years is an understatement.

Essex Book Festival is unique. It is the only festival of its kind to take place over a one-month period, hosted by over forty venues, across one of the UK’s largest and most diverse counties.

We collaborate with a diverse range of local, regional, national, and international organisations to fulfil our objectives.

Partnership working and community engagement is our guiding principle. We believe that the whole is greater than its parts.

Take a look at our key objectives for the next three years and how we plan on making it happen.
