COVID-19 AND THE BERWICK LITERARY FESTIVAL – STILL ON!
October 15th to October 18th 2020
We are in the fortunate position of having a full programme planned so we are still working on the assumption that our Festival will be able to present a fascinating group of speakers in October this year and welcome visitors to the town. The topics include history, poetry, fiction, climate change, veganism, biography, the book trade, and gardening, all presented in historic venues. We are very sorry to see our neighbouring festivals cancelled or postponed, which makes it more important that Berwick holds out hope. Meanwhile please take care and we hope to see you in October.
Some Participants reflect on our 2019 Festival:
Berwick Literary Festival is a triumph. Thanks to everyone involved!
Many thanks for inviting me. I enjoyed it a lot – a very friendly and receptive audience. You have all done a great job.
A quick note to thank all at Berwick festival for asking me to speak – and for your amazing organization. It was an absolute honour to be invited – and a very real pleasure to be there.
