Richmond Literature Festival

A fantastic annual festival of books and words, tales, talks, ideas and thoughts at venues throughout Richmond upon Thames in November.

The Richmond Literature Festival is a calendar highlight for the borough and beyond.

Taking place throughout the whole of November the programme features an exciting and varied line up of authors, commentators and leading figures from the world of journalism, television, food, history and politics.

There will also be events on cocktails and beer, food and gardening, panel discussions, workshops, poetry and spoken word. Plus an exciting programme for children and young people.

Many of the festival events are set among prestigious heritage locations including Marble Hill House, Strawberry Hill House as well as the borough’s libraries and other interesting spaces.

We are also delighted to be hosting hugely popular and local author, Jacqueline Wilson as part of the children and young people’s programme.
