Writers' Guild members are able to book tickets for all events at this year's Birmingham Book Festival at the discount rate. To take advantage of this offer either go to the website: www.birminghambookfestival.org click through to the events and follow the link to the online booking page or ring the box office on 0121 303 2323. In both cases, select the concessionary rate. You will then need to show your card or give your membership number at the event itself. We hope you will feel this is a valuable membership benefit. And remember, the more events you book, the more you will save!
