And We’re Live!

We are excited to announce that the entire Open Book programme is up on our site as well as on Webtickets!
The 130+ events will be running from the Fugard Theatre, the Book Lounge and other selected venues.

Once again, it’s a great mix of ticketed and free events with something for everyone.

As always, a word of warning – changes are inevitable, so please be sure to watch for any updates…
