Scone Literary Festival

“So rare these days: a literary festival both ambitious and intimate.”

Become a Friend of the Festival!

Scone Literary Festival is a non-profit member organisation presenting two major events each year and occasional events throughout the year.

We’ve embarked on a major growth strategy, backed by the Upper Hunter Shire Council with a recent major, funding boost, to assist with the revitalisation of Scone post by-pass, and build on the literary heritage of Scone.

That’s where the Friends of the Festival come in – to show your support of this fabulous, “big, little” festival and help us fulfil our mission and vision to promote the love of words through special, intimate, informal and fun events that stimulate great conversation.

Join today and gain access to very special benefits. The cost to join is a bargain given the benefits you receive. Please note this is a special introductory price.
