Become a friend

Festival Friends are the amazing people who support the event with an annual donation

Festival friends

Being a Festival Friend helps us bring arts to the local community, while ensuring that the festival continues to evolve year on year. As the festival is a charitable organisation, this support is absolutely vital. Festival Friends also receive early access to tickets for selected events, and are specially invited to our annual launch party.


Our Golden Ticket competition is back for this year, giving one lucky Festival Friend free entry to this year's event!*

Simply register to be a Festival Friend by Thursday 1st August to be entered into the draw, and be in with a chance to win. Don't miss out!

*Excludes workshops and tours where places are very limited. Current Friends will automatically be entered into the draw.

Nairn Book and Arts Festival - Gift Aid Declaration

As a charity, Nairn Book and Arts Festival can claim Gift Aid on behalf of customers and donors who are UK tax payers. If you agree to Gift Aid your donations, we can reclaim the tax on any qualifying donations made since 05 April 2006 at no extra cost to you.

Declaration: I want to Gift Aid my donation and any donations I make in the future or have made in the past 4 years to Nairn Book and Arts Festival. I am a UK taxpayer and understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year it is my responsibility to pay any difference.
