Welcome to the York Literature Festival website
The festival promotes the arts in York, with an emphasis on literature, spoken word and poetry. We also feature music, comedy, cinema and theatre in our programme. The festival takes place annually in March.
The site will be updated with events as they are added and you can view our full events calendar here.
Thanks to everybody who attended the 2015 York Literature Festival. It was one of our most successful programmes with over 4,900 people attending. Our autumn event is Roger McGough and Ian McMillan at York Grand Opera House on 25 November 2015. Please tell your friends!
