The Stratford Literary Festival


A major literary festival based in Stratford upon Avon that runs for 6 days of events in May, then a shorter series of events in the Autumn. 

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.

Join us for six spectacular days featuring some of the biggest names from stage and screen; award-winning authors and writers who soon will be; poetry, passion and, for the first time this year, our fringe Big Top Marquee. Plus we’ll be having a Right Royal Coronation celebration!

Tickets are available from www.stratlitfest.co.uk.
