Come and join in the fun with the Margate Bookie! We run festivals, workshops and retreats in iconic venues round the town.

We’re a busy bunch, and keen to make Margate a hotbed of literary activity. And we do it in a fun and inclusive way, where everyone is welcome. We’d love you to join us. Whether you’re a book lover, writer, poet, seaside dweller, community activist, or just a fan of a day out by the sea, come along and see what we’re up to.

The Margate Bookie was set up Andreas Loizou in 2015. We’re now a Registered Charity (No 1174819).
