Welcome to Cambridge Literary Festival

...the new name for Cambridge Wordfest. Our festival, founded in 2003, has now become a staple of the city’s cultural calendar. Every Spring and Winter we invite you to join us in venues in the city's historic centre to engage with the newest fiction, cutting edge commentary and science, workshops, children's events and lots more.

This year, the festival has a smart new look and more events than ever. We're also welcoming some wonderful new partners:

- Our new national media partner, the New Statesman
- FlipSide, the Suffolk based festival of Brazilian Literature, to co-present three exciting Viva Brazil events
- And former Children's Laureate Michael Morpurgo, our newest patron. He'll be taking a special interest in helping us develop our Children's event programme.

Creating this year’s programme has been a joy and we’d like to share our sense of wonder, enlightenment and fun with you. Please come and be a part of it.
