Welcome to the 2015 Cowbridge Book Festival

Throughout the last four years we have been pleased to offer followers of the Cowbridge Book Festival and visitors to our picturesque market town a varied and stimulating series of events. Feed back from the authors and publicists has been very positive with many commenting on the engaged and friendly audiences at each event.

Trustees are delighted to announce that in 2014 the Festival raised £2,600 and the proceeds have been divided equally between Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research and The Noah’s Ark Appeal, Children’s Hospital of Wales. This achievement would not have been possible without the support of all the authors who gave so generously of their time, a great team of volunteers who ensured the smooth running of the events and provided refreshments.
The Festival has donated over £27,600 to these charities since it’s inception 4 year ago.
