Marlborough Book Festival


Marlborough Book Festival 2021

This year’s Marlborough Book Festival features 13 acclaimed authors and seven superb interviewers speaking in two beautiful spaces right here at the ASB Theatre Marlborough in Blenheim. 

PaperPlus Blenheim will have a book shop set up in the theatre foyer so you can linger and discuss your festival favourites, and authors will be available after their sessions to sign books.
