What type of ticket should I buy?
Byron Writers Festival is set up a bit like a music festival, with six stages that you can move between as you please, featuring panel discussions, conversations and Q&A’s. If you buy a 3-Day pass or 1-Day pass you will get access to all sessions happening in the main Festival program for your chosen days (for 3-Day pass holders that’s around 115+ sessions to choose from!).
Feature Events are individually ticketed events during Festival week in venues across the region (a few of them are free). Access to Feature Events is not included in 3-Day and 1-Day passes.
If you want to bring your little ones along to meet their favourite childrens’ authors, tickets to Kids Big Day Out at the main Festival site on Sunday 5 August are only $40 for one child and accompanying adult (or $60 for two kids, $80 for three kids).
