Plymouth Festival of Words

Building on the success of the city’s Plymouth International Book Festival, the new and improved Plymouth Festival of Words will take place between Wednesday 3-Sunday 5 May 2017 celebrating literature and ‘words’ through a diverse range of art forms including theatre, film and more.

In addition to opening Plymouth History Month, Plymouth Festival of Words will bring a rich programme of writers, poets, film-makers and performance artists to Plymouth. For the first time, the Festival also includes the  Society for Storytelling's Annual Gathering, bringing professional storytellers from across the UK to Plymouth for a weekend of storytelling through music, dance and more. We welcome you to join in their fun and interactive workshops and talks.

The Plymouth Festival of Words has been organised through a partnership between Literature Works, the literature development agency for the South West, Peninsula Arts at Plymouth University, Plymouth City Council (Arts and Heritage), Wonderzoo and is supported by Arts Council England.
