Cheltenham Literature Festival

October 2 - October 11

Cheltenham Literature Festival

For ten days every Autumn Cheltenham is transformed into a literary lover’s dream as we welcome over 600 of the world’s finest writers, actors, politicians, poets and leading opinion formers to help us celebrate the joy of the written word.

Alongside a programme of nearly 500 debates, interviews and workshops, Cheltenham Literature Festival also hosts Book It! a festival within a festival for families and young readers. Where else could you see the Gruffalo rub shoulders with an award-winning novelist, or a Hollywood legend exchange views with political leaders?

Established in 1949, The Times Cheltenham Literature Festival is one of oldest literary events in the world – and with a feast of superstar speakers, an unrivalled setting at the heart of Cheltenham, and the chance to meet your favourite authors and characters – it’s certainly the most fun!

“The very first proper literature festival I’ve ever been to, and definitely one of my
all-time favourites” – Jacqueline Wilson
