What is Litfest?

Litfest is a volunteer board-run organisation that develops writers, engages readers and audiences, and celebrates literary excellence. We do this through our annual literature festival which has been staged since 1978 and a range of other events and projects that have positioned the organisation at the heart of Lancashire’s cultural and creative activity.

Our board is currently comprised of nine members: Julie Bell (Chair), Natalie Sorrell Charlesworth, Jake Hope, Bill Swainson, Saul Argent, Olivia Egdell-Page, Megan Lounds, Janet Thomas and Emma Crighton.
