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 autumn. We're also a charity promoting the benefits of reading and writing on education, literacy and well-being with activities and workshops in schools, the community and prisons.

The Festival is one of the most significant literary festivals in the UK, attracting thousands of people to the world famous literary town of Stratford-upon-Avon, and all of whom share one passion: a love of books, writing and reading.
