Plan Your Visit

Let’s make your visit as enjoyable as possible!

The Stratford Literary Festival takes place at:

Crowne Plaza Hotel
Bridge Foot
Stratford upon Avon CV37 6YR

Some events may take place at other venues so please check the programme and your ticket carefully for where your event will be taking place.

Roadworks 2024

There are planned roadworks on the Warwick Road A439 running throughout the Festival period and a one-way southbound system will be implemented, and comprehensive diversion routes will be clearly signposted for the duration of works. These roadworks will impact on all roads in to Stratford. PLEASE LEAVE PLENTY OF TIME FOR YOUR JOURNEY.


All venues can accommodate wheelchairs and those with mobility issues. There are accessible toilets available at or close to all venues. Please contact us by email here or on 01789 470185 if you have particular needs or require a seat close to the stage due to hearing or sight challenges.


Stratford is well served for car parks. Go to for details of car park locations. Festival goers can also park FREE at the Crowne Plaza Hotel (only when attending events) but you must register your car at reception on arrival. The Festival cannot be held responsible for any parking charges incurred because of failure to do this.

Book Signing

Waterstones Pop-Up shop will now be in the Hotel reception area, as will book signings after each event. Missed an event? Signed copies from earlier in the Festival will be available to buy there until Sunday evening and thereafter in the High Street branch.
