Raworths Harrogate Literature Festival
19 – 22 October 2023
At the forefront of the literary scene thanks to its stellar line-up of literary names in relaxed and intimate settings, Raworths Harrogate Literature Festival was picked out as ‘One of the UK’s best Literary Festivals’ by Harpers Bazaar and ‘One of the Top 3 Literary Festivals in the UK’ by the Guardian.
We celebrate great writing and leading thinkers, sharing stories to as wide an audience as possible with a diverse programme designed to entertain, inspire, educate, challenge and amuse. Raworths Harrogate Literature Festival is recognised for championing up-and-coming talent along with attracting best-selling authors, influential politicians, historians, journalists, comedians and stars of the screen.
In 2022, we celebrated our tenth year with a star-studded line-up including Countdown’s Queen of Dictionary Corner Susie Dent, Antiques Roadshow’s Ronnie Archer-Morgan, President of the Supreme Court Lady Hale, bestselling author Chris Ryan, BBC Radio Five Live star Nihal Arthanayake and a host of other household names.
We’re planning a captivating line-up for next year’s Festival, which will be held from 19 – 22 October 2023. Get the dates in your diary now for the hot ticket on the national Festival circuit.
