For bookworms and avid readers alike, Books By The Beach has become one of the north's leading literary festivals.

This year, the event takes place 24th to 26th April 2020 at various locations in Scarborough.

From celebrating Anne Bronte's 200th 'birthday' to discovering the secrets of Ancient Egypt; from best-selling authors to newspaper columnists; and from a world-renowned hostage negotiator to solo travellers with an incredible story to tell, there is something for every literary interest and taste.

Scarborough's Central Library is the main venue, while other locations include the Spa Theatre, the Stephen Joseph Theatre, Scarborough Yacht Club and other places.

Tickets are available from the Stephen Joseph Theatre.
