The Times Cheltenham Literature Festival is one of four main Cheltenham Festivals in an exciting annual calendar of festivals within the town.

For ten days in October, Cheltenham is transformed into a literary lover's dream as over 600 of the world's finest writers, actors, politicians, poets and leading opinion formers help to celebrate the joy of the written word.  

Alongside a programme of nearly 500 debates, interviews and workshops, the Book It! festival within a festival is for families and young readers.  Established in 1949, The Times Cheltenham Literature Festival is one of the oldest literary events in the world - and with a feast of superstar speakers from award-winning novelists to Hollywood legends, in an unrivaled setting at the heart of Cheltenham, it's certainly one of the most fun!
