Welcome to the Digital Folkestone Book Festival.
Enjoy a packed programme of incredible speakers from across the globe with our new digital pass.
You will need to order your pass at least 24 hours before the start of the first event you wish to attend.
This year, the Creative Folkestone Book Festival will be a little different. We have designed the festival as a hybrid of live and online events in an effort to keep everyone safe during uncertain times.
Enjoy inspiring talks by leading thinkers from across the world including Roisin Kiberd, Martin Wolf, Otegha Uwagba, Anna Jones and more. Explore big topics including Trump, Brexit, food, race relations and digital utopias both in-person and online.
Experience the whole festival from the comfort of your own home by booking a Digital Pass for just £15.
During the festival, this page will host the portal to Airmeet, our festival platform, where you will be able to access all of the online events.
All events will be recorded on Airmeet so you can catch up with anything you miss for up to a week after the festival.
What is Airmeet?
To present the festival online we will be using a platform called Airmeet. Airmeet is an online venue for conferences and events. It is designed to offer you the opportunity to not only enjoy talks but to interact with others and ask questions in real-time.
It is really simple to use and easy to access. By booking your Digital Pass you will be able to access all events through Airmeet. You can visit this page to login to the platform.
