How it works

Everyone who registers and attends any session will be automatically entered into the draw. The prize is one free book per winner from the list above to be mailed to your preferred address. The book will be chosen for you.

When we draw a name, we will try and find a book relevant to the session you attended, however this might not always be possible.

Attending the session you registered for is mandatory to be in with the chance of receiving a book.

The winners will be selected at random. We will be drawing names once the Festival has finished, and we will let you know by the email you registered with if you have won.
