Description

The Cheltenham Literature Festival returns for 2019, ready to kick off autumn as we kick through the fallen leaves on pursuit for this year’s new reads! The festival is celebrating its 70th birthday this year - did you know it is the first ever and longest running literature festival in the world?! What an incredible heritage, right on our doorstep!

This years events include the usual '#cheltlitfest around town' events, free events for grown ups and so many family-friendly activities and workshops for little ones (read our extensive guide here), along with special '7 at 70' celebrations.

Alongside the talks and book signings, the chance to grab a quick bite from street food traders, or to stop for lunch at the Feast Café or to slow the pace for just a drink (or two) from Festival Bar is yours!

There's so much to see and do, with over 430 events and activities listed! With new additions and old favourites, there's something for everyone! Find out more and browse individual events on the Cheltenham Festivals website here.

"The very first proper literature festival I’ve ever been to, and definitely one of my all-time favourites." Jacqueline Wilson
