About the festival
Cambridge Literary Festival is the foremost literary festival in the Eastern region. Established in 2003, it delivers two festivals a year plus one-off events and presents a dynamic range of high-profile participants across the worlds of literature, media, science, history, politics, poetry, philosophy and children’s authors. In 2013 the festival became a registered charity with its objects being the advancement of education for the benefit of the public by the promotion of literature, language and the arts through a literary festival in Cambridge.
The festival continues to be a big event run by a small, hardworking team. If you’d like to help us ensure the festival will continue for another dozen years and more, please consider supporting us through becoming a Friend of the Festival. Click HERE to find out more.
