Aardvark Festival Bookshop
We have some excellent authors and speakers joining us this year, many of whom have books available; it's also your chance to get a signed copy from the Aardvark Festival Bookshop. This is based in the Castle Gardens area of the Castle, and is kindly hosted by Aardvark Books.
Each day there will be different authors featuring their books in the 'pop-up' book shop in partnership with the amazing Aardvark Books!
