Celebrating its 8th year in 2015, The Stratford-upon-Avon Literary Festival is an exciting mixture of debate, ideas, celebrity author events, workshops and humour. Alongside this is a programme of education events in Stratford and local schools involving favourite authors, poets and illustrators, entertaining and inspiring children from 2 to 18.
The Stratford-upon-Avon Literary Festival is the highlight of the regional calendar and one of the most significant literary festivals in the UK, attracting thousands of people who share one passion: a love of books, writing and reading.

We are extremely grateful to Stratford Town Trust who will be supporting the Festival again in 2015.
Please note: Literary Festival events are usually an hour long, unless otherwise stated. Authors will sign copies of their books at all events. If you are buying a ticket on the door, cash or cheques only please. We reserve the right to substitute speakers if the need arises. We advise people to check the website prior to the event to ensure there has been no change to the programme.
