Early bird tickets for next year’s Ullapool Book Festival are now on sale. The festival takes place from Friday 8th May to Sunday 10th and some of the writers taking part will be announced in mid-January. The full programme will be announced in March when tickets will go on sale. There will be a limited number of weekend tickets covering all 15 sessions costing £95; individual session tickets will be £8 each. But for those who trust the festival organisers to produce a great programme, and who are happy to buy without knowing who the writers are, they are once again running the early bird offer until 31st December. A full weekend ticket can be bought for only £85. The offer will stop on the last day of the year and no more weekend tickets will be sold until they go on sale in March at the full price of £95. You can buy these special-offer tickets either from their website, www.ullapoolbookfestival.co.uk, or by sending a cheque (made out to Ullapool Book Festival) to Ullapool Book Festival, PO Box 27, Ullapool IV26 2WY enclosing a stamped address envelope.
