Marking the decade milestone, next year the 10th Ullapool Book Festival will be held from Friday 9th to Sunday 11th May.
The programme will be announced in March when tickets will go on sale.
But for those who trust UBF to produce a great programme, and who are happy to buy without knowing who the writers are, they are once again running a special offer until 31 December 2013.
A weekend ticket can be bought for only £85. The offer will stop on the last day of the year and no more weekend tickets will be sold until they go on sale in March at the full price of £95.
If there are any left, that is! - there will be a limited number of weekend tickets covering all fifteen sessions costing £95: individual session tickets will be £8 each.
You can buy the ‘Early Bird’ special offer tickets either from the festival website at www.ullapoolbookfestival.co.uk or by sending a cheque (made out to Ullapool Book Festival) to Ullapool Book Festival, PO Box 27, Ullapool IV26 2WY, enclosing a stamped address envelope.
The festival committee is even more excited than usual about the 10th anniversary programme and are delighted that, yet again, they have attracted a wonderful group of guests.
The festival website lists all the guests who have appeared since the first festival in 2005; it makes very impressive reading.
And the list of the 2014 guests will be announced in mid-January, well after the early bird ticket offer has closed.
