Welcome to Litfest!

Litfest’s 2022 Autumn Weekend has come to an end — and what a festival we’ve had!  Huge thanks to Clare Shaw, Sarah Thomas, Tim Dee, Jon Carter, Kim Moore and Geetanjali Shree, as well as all of our wonderful partners, volunteers and audiences.  

We’ll be back in the spring with our main festival — we look forward to seeing you then!
