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 (5-14 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!
