Welcome to the sixteenth
Swindon Festival of Literature!
Sweet sixteen we are, and keen to act our age, by being bold, bright, and beautiful.

This year’s Festival offers entertainment, exploration, and ideas aplenty. It includes novelists, poets, politicians, philosophers, scientists, storytellers, sportsmen, historians, comedians, artists, and activists. Ours is a festival that sets out to prove that when readers meet writers, and writers meet readers, enjoyable, interesting, challenging, worthwhile, unpredictable, funny, and memorable things happen.

The Festival begins, as ever, with fun and the rising sun, at dawn on that high ridge overlooking the town in Lawn Woods – on the Spring Bank Holiday, Monday 4th May!

And on each subsequent day, there will be three or more events, at midday, teatime, and in the evening, carefully spaced and placed, to enable you to attend almost every one, should you have the stamina! For a list of all events, go to the Festival Diary page.

And then, mark your own diary, so that from the 4th to the 17th May you know where to be, if you want to be meeting, greeting, hearing, talking, listening, and celebrating the world of words, with others!

 
Please read on, and come along.
