Chosen by Harper’s Bazaar as ‘One of the UK’s best Literary Festivals’, the Raworths Harrogate Literature Festival offers an excellent range of bestselling authors to share their stories. From the opening event to the final speaker, spend a long weekend with a programme designed to entertain and inspire.

This year’s festival will be a little different, as we are unable to gather together in person, but that has not stopped us from creating a wonderful programme of well known faces, fascinating speakers, authors, and politicians to join us as we once again present a star-studded line-up of fascinating literary names online from 22-25 October 2020.

In previous year’s we’ve welcomed Prime Minister David Cameron, beloved BBC Countryfile broadcaster John Craven; veteran news anchor Mark Austin; British Army veteran Simon Weston CBE, presenter-turned-GB triathlete Louise Minchin; Channel 5’s Yorkshire Vet Julian Norton, and business titan Sir Tim Waterstone, and you’re certainly in for a treat once again this year.

The programme for the Raworths Harrogate Literature Festival 2020 will be announced shortly. Sign up to our online mailing list for all the latest news and events.
