...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.
The next festival will take place Wednesday 15th – Sunday 19th April 2015. The full programme will be available soon, or you can sign up to our newsletter for updates.
