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

Friends of the Festival – Existing Members

It’s that time of year! Membership renewal.

As they say, a friend in need is a friend indeed, and your support is needed more than ever in this crazy COVID time when there have been major funding cuts to the arts.  Grant money is sparse, to say the least.

Here’s a reminder of what the Friends of the Festival membership program is all about:

  • Exclusive ticket prices to the two-day Festival, and Patrick White Oration, both sold-out events and growing in their popularity
  • First access to the Festival Program, PWO and priority booking periods
  • Discounts to bookshops including Hunt a Book in Scone, and we’re negotiating with others

Not only will you enjoy this exclusive access to our ever popular events you’ll have the satisfaction that comes from supporting a great local initiative. The Scone Literary Festival is not only making its mark on the overall literary scene but is making a major contribution to the cultural life and diversity of the Upper Hunter.

Renew your membership today:

  • $30.00 individual member
  • $90.00 corporate/company membership


Make a donation. (We have applied for DGR status, so hopefully soon all your donations will be tax deductible.)

Thank you for being a Friend!
