Add Stratford Literary Festival to your list of things to do in April
Be in the company of celebrity authors and best-selling writers at this lively literary event in the UK.
Past guests include one-time poet laureate, Carol Ann Duffy, the iconic BBC reporter John Simpson and crime writer PD James.
Try your hand at creative writing workshops and 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, including craft workshops, storytelling, face painting and regular guest appearances by Horrible Histories.
