As consequence of the Coronavirus we’ve been unable to open our Festival Villages this year. But we won’t let that stop us. Culture, and the written and spoken word is more important than ever right now, for everyone…

For 2020 the Cheltenham Literature Festival is going digital.
Streaming FREE content for all.

We are excited about the programme we have planned, bringing big names and new talent to you, wherever you are. But this year, without ticket sales and donations associated with people visiting our festival villages, your generosity is vital to us.

We exist to inspire the next generation.

Studies show that reading for pleasure is the biggest single indicator of a child’s future success. Year round we run projects that are changing lives through access to reading, creating a new generation of booklovers and writers, and giving a lifeline to young people too ill to attend school.

Your support matters now more than ever.

Thank you.
