...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 winter, we host a boutique festival featuring seventeen specially-crafted events across a variety of genres: whether you’re into fiction, history, memoir, activism, nature-writing, or fairytales, we have something for you. The winter festival will take place Sunday 30th November 2014 – the programme will be available here in the autumn, or you can sign up to our newsletter for updates. Tickets go on sale 15th October 2014.
To whet your appetite for this winter treat, we will also be hosting three preview events in November. Don’t miss Nick Hornby, Marilynne Robinson and Clive James – visit www.cambridgeliteraryfestival.com/schedule for more details. Tickets are on sale now.
