Seat Reservations

If there's a film or workshop you want to be sure to catch, you can reserve a place on Eventbrite. You will then pay for your place when you arrive at the venue. 

Alternatively, you can just turn up on the day and reserve a spot; we'll do our best to advertise on our socials about events that are close being full.

Festival Pass

Save up to 20% off the full ticket price, and support future LQFF events, with a Festival Pass. For £30, £40, or £50 (pay what you can), you get:

Limited number available; purchase on The Bookish Type's website.

We are committed to making the festival affordable for everyone.


We decided that a sliding scale was the best way to allow everyone to afford a ticket that is within their financial reach whilst also ensuring the festival can continue each year.


We ask that you be honest with yourself and your financial situation. If you purchase a ticket at the lowest end of the scale when you could afford the higher ticket prices, it makes it harder for us to provide financial flexibility to those who most need it.
