Donate to the Leeds Big Bookend

Help us to continue with our Rock Festival for Words.

Would you like to be associated with our exciting festival? Do you feel as passionately as we do that reading is for everyone and that in particular encouraging children to read and be inspired at a young age is vital for the health and well being of the nation?

The Leeds Big Bookend Festival, now in its 6th year, is the city of Leeds’ first ever book festival and a truly wonderful enterprise, and we’d like your support.

Organised by a plucky band of volunteers, the Big Bookend is operating on a pretty tiny budget right now, but we’ve got big ambitions. To get everything into place, we need that little extra infusion of money. That’s where you come in.



If you would like to donate to the Big Bookend we have Gift Aid status with HMRC. This means we can claim the tax back if you are a UK tax payer and gives us more money to use in future.

Here’s how you can make a donation:

Send us a cheque made payable to “The Big Bookend” at c/o Virtuoso Legal, 5 Sheepscar Court, Northside Business Park, Leeds, LS7 2BB.

Make a donation to the Big Bookend at Barclays Bank, Albion Street, Leeds. Contact Liz Ward by email at: or phone Liz on 0113 237 9900 for more information
