Ready to help with BookTastic Bedford 2023?

Do you want to play a part in inspiring a generation of children in Bedford and beyond to love reading and to love books?

The BookTastic children’s book festival couldn’t take place without our great team of volunteers who give their time and support in planning and on the day.

If you’d like to be part of the BookFest team we will welcome you with open arms!

We need as many volunteers as possible in order to get everything to run smoothly during the Festival.

The Schools Programme is at the University of Bedfordshire and is running from Monday 3 July – Friday 7 July 2023 – are you available to help  in person on one of these days? 


We don’t want to overload anyone and there are large and small jobs you can do to help out either before, during and after the Festival. 

If this appeals to you, please use the form below to let us know, and we will be in touch!

If you really don’t have time to help in person, we would be so very grateful if you could share our Facebook posts and our Tweets!
