About WRITE Festival

The WRITE Festival is an annual festival held by The Word and celebrates the written word in all it’s forms.

The festival is now into it’s 4th year and continues to grow. This year the festival will span over 3 weeks and includes a jam-packed programme of events, workshops and performances for people of all ages to enjoy!

Extending the festival has allowed us to programme even more for families and children as well as attract more big names for our adult audience.

We look forward to welcoming some new faces to The Word as well as welcoming back some of our favourites from previous years. On top of this, we will also have several new commissions which will debut during the festival including a short story anthology, a reportage exhibition and new local dialect songs.

The festival will also continue to engage local schools through workshops and events with students, as well as supporting aspiring writers with a range of writing and publishing masterclasses.

We hope you enjoy the festival and all it has to offer. Make sure to book your tickets today so you don’t miss out!
