welcome to


The Penarth Book Festival is a not-for-profit, voluntary run book festival set in the Victorian seaside town of Penarth, South Wales, which normally takes place during October.

We’re currently busy planning the 2014 Festival and hope to start announcing events from July onwards, but if you want a flavour of what it’s all about, visit the ‘Events Archive’ section of this site to view the 2012 and 2013 events.

If you attended the Festival in 2013 we would love to know what you thought of it. Follow this link to our feedback form:


In the meantime, you can follow us on Facebook and Twitter for up-to-the-minute news and announcements.

See you in October.
