You’ll hear from us following the Easter break. Please note, we do not have a fax machine.
Policy and Procedure
Tickets are free. We anticipate high demand, so please book early to avoid disappointment. Where there is significant demand for events, priority will be given to schools in Glenrothes, schools in areas of economic need, and schools who have not previously attended an Edinburgh International Book Festival event.
If your requested event is available, we will email you a Booking Confirmation along with an information pack to help you begin preparing for your visit. If your requested events are full, we will contact you to discuss alternative options and our waiting list procedure. If you need to amend or cancel your reservation, please do so in enough time that we may reallocate your seats to another school.
If you need financial support to transport your class to ReimagiNation: Glenrothes please apply for our Transport Fund. First get an estimate of the cost of bringing your pupils to the Rothes Halls for each visit. Then fill in the estimated cost and relevant details on your booking form. Funding is allocated based on economic need and geographical distance.
Your Booking Confirmation will include confirmation of whether your application has been successful, and to what extent your travel will be subsidised. You will then book and pay for any necessary transport. After the Festival you will invoice us for reimbursement of your Transport Fund allocation. The deadline for this is Friday 15 June.
The closing date for bookings and Transport Fund applications is Friday 23 March. Applications received after this will be considered on a case by case basis.
