Third party links and resources in our site
Where our site contains links to other sites and resources provided by third parties, these links are provided for your information only.
We have no control over the contents of those sites or resources.
We want our users to be confident about the events they attend, so we only select events from reliable, recognised organisers, such as major and independent booksellers, publishing houses, literary festivals, charities, libraries, museums and other public services. Full event information must be available from the organisers, including direct contact details. Events are selected at the editor's discretion.
We work hard to source great events from reliable organisers and we research every event as thoroughly as possible. However, BookGig is not responsible for the events themselves, and users should always check details with the organisers.
We will always try to feature the most up to date information and if we discover that an event has been cancelled, we will remove the listing from our site. However, with hundreds of events to cover, we are unable to keep track of every single one and users are strongly advised to check all the details on the organiser's own website before heading to an event.
Please check with the event organisers if you have accessibility requirements. All the details you need to get in touch with them are featured on the BookGig event listing.
We provide information about book and author events but, unless expressly stated, we are not the organiser of such events and have no responsibility or liability in respect of the same.
To contact us, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
