What's On

Bathurst Writers' & Readers' Festival

May 20 – 26, 2024

This year we present over 30 events across seven days making it our biggest festival ever!

Some things have changed for 2024 from previous years. Almost all sessions now have a small ticket price of just $10 (cheaper for BMEC Members) as we simply cannot afford to continue to run this as a free festival. We have a couple of free sessions including the Official Opening on the Friday night. We are offering a Multipack option when you book for 5 or more events at once – save 10%. BMEC Members automatically receive a 20% discount regardless of how many sessions are booked, so consider becoming a BMEC Member to receive all sorts of benefits.

BMEC Members can access a Festival Pass for $120 which gives them access to all sessions (excluding workshops) and includes a ticket to Fourteen. Call or visit the Box Office to purchase this.

Bookings are required for all sessions and we ask that you plan and book ahead to avoid missing out as capacity is limited especially for those at the Bathurst Library. The Box Office will be open throughout the Festival so if you spontaneously decide to attend a session you can.

Bathurst Writers’ & Readers’ Festival is produced by BMEC through our Local Stages program with the invaluable collaboration of volunteer Jen Barry, Arts OutWest, Bathurst Library, Books Plus Bathurst and Sydney Writers’ Festival.
