Wimbledon BookFest returns for “Sunset Festival” from 15 – 19 September – its second in-person festival of 2021 featuring over 40 live events.
Wimbledon BookFest is back with its second live in-person festival of the summer. Sunset Festival is a five-day event comprising more than 40 talks, workshops and activities for public and schools audiences. It follows the huge success of Sunrise Festival in June – one of the first arts festivals to return to in-person events.
Sunset Festival will follow the same Covid-secure protocols used for Sunrise, taking place in reduced-capacity, open-sided marquees on Wimbledon Common. Pre-allocated seating and other safety measures remain in place to ensure the comfort and safety of audiences, artists and staff.
Sunset Festival offers a diverse programme catering to a wide range of interests. This year sees a particular focus on memoir and life writing, alongside fiction, poetry, current affairs, history, science, performing arts, the return of our popular sports night, an expanded programme for young people, and a number of participatory events.
