It is really important for us to acknowledge and thank our partners, sponsors and supporters. Since its inception in 2011, the Big Bookend has been supported by a wide variety of public, commercial and private bodies and organisations across Leeds and nationally. Many people have given their services and time for free and continue to do so. None more so than the Big Bookend team, our volunteers and the many friends we now count amongst our regional writers, poets and performers.


Arts Council England

In 2014 we received Arts Council funding which was testament to a lot of very hard work and a growing belief that the Big Bookend is here to stay. Our aim has always been to inspire and nurture new talent and to celebrate Leeds’ rich literary heritage.

If you would like to join us and help us do this in any way then please contact us by email, or call 0113 237 9900. Thank you.
