The Festival Hub will be at the Corner House café

For my birthday this year, my daughter bought me a t-shirt with the words "Dogs, Books, Coffee" on it. She knows me well.

You can combine all three along with tasty lunches, glorious cakes, lovely ambience and a place to meet and buy tickets for the Festival at the Corner House Cafe in Berwick-upon-Tweed. The Cafe will act as the Festival Hub for the main programme events on Saturday 15th (10am - 4pm) and Sunday 16th October (11am - 3pm).

We recommend booking in advance but Siobhan will be there to welcome you to our Information Point and book your tickets if you'd rather not do it yourself or risk there being no space on the door. There will also be a table set aside for Festival speakers and interviewers, as a kind of green room, so there's a chance you could bump into one of the Festival speakers there too.

We are very grateful to Carlyn for offering space in her lovely cafe for us to have a place to sit and chat, drink coffee, eat cake, read a book, pat a dog. Sadly for him, Festival labrador Solomon will be staying at home.
