Win tickets to an Edinburgh International Book Festival event of your choice

Brilliant events and books galore – the Edinburgh International Book Festival is back on 10 - 26 August!

As a proud sponsor for over 30 years, we're delighted to give three Caboodlers the chance to win a pair of tickets to any one of the fantastic events – if you win, the choice is yours!*

Every summer over 900 writers from around the globe gather to discuss books, stories and the hottest topics of today with audiences in this incredible celebration of the written word.

The Book Festival, which is the biggest event of its kind in the world, features an inspiring range of events for all ages, with interview-style chats, lively discussion sessions, workshops, performances, interactive events for kids and much more.

This year amazing authors like Arundhati Roy, Markus Zusak, Colson Whitehead and Ali Smith take to the stage, with every event taking place in the Book Festival’s charming leafy tented village in Charlotte Square Gardens and the west end of George Street.

Entry to the Book Festival is free. Visitors can soak up the atmosphere, relax with a book and a drink, grab something to eat, browse fantastic bookshops, meet their literary heroes and find new favourites in a packed programme of more than 800 events.

We'll choose the three lucky winners after Sunday 28th July. Please make sure you can get to Edinburgh in August before you enter!
