June events: Celebrate the written word at Stoke Literary Festival

Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire

Housed within a working factory, the Stoke Literary Festival is a surprisingly scenic spot for a literary celebration.

A factory on the outskirts of Stoke-on-Trent might not sound like the most inspiring location in the world, but The Festival in a Factory at Emma Bridgewater brings authors and book lovers together for a three-day literary festivity. 

The festival will feature talks and workshops with award-winning authors, poets and playwrights on diverse subjects covering everything from history and politics, to children's fiction and poetry. Whether you're a budding writer or simply want a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the creative process, you're bound to learn something fascinating during the festival.

This year's festival lineup includes BAFTA nominated screenwriter and novelist Deborah Moggach, actress Celia Imrie, retail consultant and broadcaster Mary Portas, and children's author Lauren Child.

The Festival in a Factory 2019 takes place between 6-8 June; tickets to all events are available now.
