Last year we welcomed thousands of visitors to Bude, celebrating the written word. This year we saw bigger numbers and a host of tourists visiting the town, encouraging the creative word to once again be celebrated.

Hosted by Bude-Stratton Town Council, Bude Lit Fest has once again been supported by this wonderful community. From our Key Supporters at Spencer Thorn Bookshop and Oxford Bidding Services to our wonderful selection of independent businesses and community groups, who have helped to support the festival through sponsorship and events.

To top it all off, we have a fantastic group of volunteers, whom we lovingly refer to as our ‘bookworms’ who have a wealth of knowledge and expertise whom play an inaugural part in making the festival a great success!

 If you would like to get involved and support us, we have several options to do this in our sponsorship brochure. Download it below and see how you can contribute to this fantastic community event! See the full list of our sponsors below. Don’t forget, it’s never to late to sponsor our events, whether you start off with the £50 bundle or donate a prize for our raffle on Sunday 19th May 2024.

All packages now include an advert (free design) on our social media and website platforms.
