Walking Between Venues
Please allow enough time to get to your event venue.
For this Winter Festival, our events are taking place in three venues. These venues are far apart from each other (particularly the Babbage Lecture Theatre which is a 20-minute walk from the Old Divinity School, and a 25-minute walk from the Palmerston Room), so please do give yourself enough time to get to your venue.
If you are late to an event you will only be admitted at the discretion of the steward(s).

Festival Box Office
Where to collect your tickets
The Festival Box Office is run by Cambridge Live Tickets. During the Winter Festival 2018, the Box Office will be located at the Old Divinity School, St John’s College.
It will be open from 9am on Friday 5, Saturday 6 and Sunday 7 April 2019 to buy and collect tickets. All tickets must be collected or purchased here during the festival. Tickets will not be available to collect on the door of the event you are attending.
Please allow enough time to collect your tickets before your event starts, to provide for queuing and travel between venues. It can take up to 20 -25 minutes to walk from the Box Office to festival event venues.
For more information on tickets, see our Booking Information.
Our festival bookshop is run by Heffers (Blackwells) and will be located in all three venues during the festival.
Book sales and signings will take place in the same venue as the event.
You can also visit Heffers Bookshop all year round on Trinity Street, CB2 1TY.
Cambridge Literary Festival aims to be an inclusive and accessible festival. If you have a query about accessibility, please contact Katie Edwards at the festival office: firstname.lastname@example.org or 01223 515 335.
