The 2020 all-new Cheltenham Literature Festival

This year we’re giving you the opportunity to attend events as part of a socially distanced physical audience, or watch them for free as they are live-streamed. We are excited about our programme bringing big names and new talent to you, wherever you are. But this year, with only 30% of ticket available to sell, your donations are more important than ever.

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, creating communities of book lovers that spread out from individual classrooms to whole schools and out into pupils’ homes, inspiring a new generation of readers and writers, and giving a lifeline to young people too ill to attend school.

Your generosity is vital to us – please support us today.
