Celebrity authors, great thinkers and best-selling writers come together at this lively literary event.
Visit the Stratford upon Avon Literary Festival and you’ll be rubbing shoulders with the some of best authors and most respected voices in the business.
Past guests include one-time poet laureate, Carol Ann Duffy, the iconic BBC reporter John Simpson and crime writer PD James.
The annual festival is not only an opportunity to meet celebrated authors and speakers but to try your hand at creative writing too; workshops offer the chance to learn new skills, hone your literary talents – and perhaps make contacts that lead to that lucrative book deal. Who knows?
One thing is certain: this isn’t an adults-only affair. There’s plenty on for young readers too, from talks by children’s illustrators, to book-making workshops and circus skills classes.
