Spreading the Word
Since 2008 we've been bringing you an exciting mixture of debate, ideas, celebrity author events, workshops and humour in spring and winter. We're also a charity promoting the benefits of reading and writing on education, literacy and well-being in schools, the community and prisons.
The Festival is 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
