9.00am to 5.00pm, up to 24 hours before the time of the event.

Child Protection Policy

Children under 12 MUST be accompanied by a ticket-buying adult at all Festival events. Children under two who do not require a seat, do not require a ticket. Shrewsbury Bookfest maintains a Child Protection Policy, but we cannot act in loco parentis or take responsibility for unsupervised children.


Age Range

We’ve included a recommended age range for each event to help you choose. These ages are carefully chosen in consultation with the publisher and author/illustrator, taking into account the length, content and format of each event.  However, the age ranges are a guideline only and are not enforced!



Any person attending a Bookfest event consents to being photographed by local press or Bookfest for publicity purposes, including our website. Some events may also be  lmed for publicity purposes, including YouTube streaming. Please see a Bookfest Organiser before the start of the event with any questions or concerns about this.


Access For All

Everyone is welcome at all our venues and we will do whatever we can to ensure you have an enjoyable visit to your event
