The Waiheke Book Festival Charitable Trust has a bold vision for the Festival and is determined for it to become a “must go to” literary weekend.

The Festival has a great mix of ticketed and free events and the team is working hard to ensure ticket prices are as affordable as possible to make this wonderful line-up accessible to as many people as we can.

To support the Festival, we are creating a Friends and Patrons programme and invite you to become a founding Patron with a gift of $250. 

Over time we will use these funds to host more award -winning national and international writers, either by live feed or on the island in person.

As a Patron you might enjoy billeting a literary guest over the Festival weekend. We have several authors who have asked if we can assist with accommodation for the weekend so they can stay beyond their own session and contribute to the sessions of other writers.

We are hoping to host a special literary event for our supporters, who will also receive a special code to use when booking tickets to get discounts on ticket prices and reserved seat for various Festival events.

We do hope you will support the work of the Festival Trust and attend some of our wonderful event this year.
