Celebrating its 6th year in 2013, 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 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.
Provisional Dates of the 2014 Festival:
Sunday, 20th April to Friday, 2nd May
