We are delighted to announce that this year's Berwick Literary Festival will take place on October 20th, 21st and 22nd. As in previous years there will be a line-up of top authors and illustrators talking about their work and running workshops. Details of the events will be made in the coming weeks and months.
Berwick Literary Festival has always relied on the support of its patrons. Last year more than a hundred individuals and organsations generously contributed and helped to make the event a huge success. In the run-up to the 2017 festival there will be a meeting for those wishing to become patrons this year in the town's Guildhall at 7.00pm on Wednesday 17th May. Anyone interested is invited to come along. Alternatively please email :
In October 2016, following the success of the first two Berwick Literary Festivals, England's most northerly town again staged a celebration of books and authors. Dozens of talks, workshops and other events were staged at venues all over Berwick upon Tweed. There was something for everyone, from children to adult readers, from budding writers to history buffs. We are currently planning for the next Berwick Literary Festival and intend to make it every bit as successful as in 2016.
