Supporting Off the Shelf

Off the Shelf is one of the most innovative and accessible literary festivals in the UK, and despite the global pandemic the Off the Shelf team have worked hard to create a rich and diverse programme in 2020 – the festival’s 29th year.

The Festival relies on box office revenue to keep it sustainable and this year we anticipate a 75% decrease in our revenue. Please donate and help us to keep Off the Shelf sustainable and accessible for the people of Sheffield and beyond, for communities, for the authors we support, for readers and writers, for everyone who loves literature. The money we raise will go back to the Festival to pay for the authors, the venues, the podcasts and free digital events we have produced and the great content we are delivering. In supporting Off the Shelf, your donation will contribute to the cultural life of our beloved city and enable us to continue our work.

Off the Shelf will have a mix of free online events – 80% of the festival programme – and ticketed live on stage/live streamed events (tickets available now).

To help the festival remain sustainable and accessible for audiences, authors and performers, readers and writers we have set up a Just Giving page should you wish to support the festival.

The money raised will go back into the festival to help it continue its work and we are grateful for any support that you can give www.justgiving.com/fundraising/offtheshelf.

Please help Off the Shelf survive and thrive.
