The new membership benefits are the Festival’s way of thanking them for their enthusiastic support.’

The loyalty scheme has always appealed to regular Festival-goers who appreciate the early-bird tickets and substantial savings on all tickets plus reserved seating and access to the Friends lounge at the Festival.

Organisers announced that the new benefits include:

·         10% off at all Costa Coffee outlets in the UAE

·         10% off on books and stationery at WHSmith outlets across the UAE

·         10% off on Bookworm purchases, and

Reorganised into a three-tier system divided into Single, Couple and Family memberships, all membership packages also allow for an add-on facility for younger members. The benefits for membership can now be redeemed using Festival Friend loyalty cards.

Tickets for the eighth Emirates Airline Festival of Literature will be available to Festival Friends from January 7, 2016, a week before the general public. Registration details for the cards can be found online. For more details, visit
