  • A copy of the Festival Programme delivered to your registered address
  • An invitation to social events during the year
  • Priority booking for Festival events. Booking will be opened exclusively to Friends and Sponsors earlier than the general public
  • Three complimentary tickets to a wide choice of events during the Festival, when booked in advance using the Friends and Sponsors Booking Form
  • Recognition and acknowledgement in the Festival Programme
  • The satisfaction of helping to further embed ILF into Ilminster’s literary and cultural scene and through it to promote and enhance our town’s reputation.

Become an ILF volunteer

It costs nothing but you’ll still have our grateful thanks! If you can spare a little time, particularly during and around the Festival itself, we would love to add you to the Volunteer list. This is your chance to be, for example, an usher, a ticket collector, a driver moving equipment or helping to distribute programme brochures. In other words, an all round invaluable helper. If interested, please e mail your name and contact details to the Festival Office – and thank you –
