Raworths Harrogate Literature Festival

19-22 Oct 2017 |  Harrogate | home of literature

The Raworths Harrogate Literature Festival has become the hot ticket on the national Festival circuit thanks to its stellar line-up of literary names in beautifully intimate settings. Hosted over a long weekend, this Festival, now in its seventh year, celebrates great writing by bringing best-selling authors, influential politicians, comedians and stars of the stage to share their stories with as wide an audience as possible, with a programme designed to entertain and inspire.

Tying in with our over-arching theme of ‘Generations’, this year’s line-up is designed to celebrate literature and ideas passed down, honoured or reinvented through the ages.
