2020 Sponsors

Thanks to our main sponsors Adelphi Holdings and Hurstpierpoint College, and also to Cuckfield Bathrooms, Cumnor House Sussex, David Foord Brown,
P & S Gallagher, Marcus Grimes, Helme & Hallett Ltd., Mrs Maggie Kapf and Ockenden Manor: we couldn’t put on the festival without you.



Huge thanks to those who gave anonymously. Also to Cuckfield Dramatic Society, Louis Mackay, Parish Council staff and Waterstones.


We are as usual hugely grateful to everyone who has offered support to Cuckfield Book Festival, whether it be financial, practical or moral. So many people have encouraged us to go ahead and we are confident that the day will justify your enthusiasm.

Particular thanks to Allie Young who has taken on the monumental task of dealing with COVID-19 protocol and ensuring that the Queen’s Hall will be safe for everyone.

Thanks also to our volunteers, to Pat Hegarty and her literary quiz compilers, Sam Oliver, Sally Nakajima, Gavin Jamieson, the Parish Council and Cuckfield Life.

And we also are grateful to Cuckfield Book Festival co-founders, Sheila Chasser and Sue Laing, and to Elspeth Chasser for their invaluable contribution to the running of the festival.

Mark Granger and John Fincham will film each event which can be viewed afterwards on YouTube – thank you both so much. YouTube access details will be supplied after the festival.

Cuckfield Dramatic Society have once again looked after our lighting – many thanks indeed.

Jamie Bowden is responsible for sound.
