The Stoke-on-Trent Literary Festival takes place in June at the Emma Bridgewater Factory.
The 'Festival in a Factory' will return to Stoke-on-Trent in 2017 - a year that the city will celebrate 150 years since the birth of local author Arnold Bennett. The festival will feature stimulating encounters with award-winning authors, poets and playwrights on diverse subjects from history and politics, to literature, crafts and the arts, children's fiction to local inspiration, entertainment and sporting memories, all helping to inspire and foster a love of books and reading.
Stoke-on-Trent Literary Festival 2017 takes place between 8 - 10 June in the creative and bustling environment of the Emma Bridgewater Factory with a packed programme sure to delight audiences of many interests and all ages.
Since launching in 2014, the festival has become a cultural highlight in Stoke-on-Trent. For three days in June events from author talks, panel discussions, hands-on workshops and live performances take place all around the canal-side factory in surprising spaces from the old pottery warehouse to the cobbled courtyard.
