Download the PDF Brochure here [6Mb]Events for this year's festival are now being planned and we'll start listing them on the website in May.  The brochure  will be ready in August. We'll also post the latest news on our Facebook page and keep Twitter updated with the latest news.

Events last approximately one hour. There will be enough time in between each event  to enable you to attend consecutive events, although in some cases you may  have to change venues. After every event Waterstones will be providing the author's books for you to buy, and there will be the opportunity to meet  authors and have a book signed. To avoid queuing books can be ordered in advance from Waterstones.

Feedback From 2019 Festival

I thought the event had a really good feel to it - and people couldn't have been friendlier and more welcoming. Good luck with future events.
