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 launch in May 2017 celebrating literature and ‘words’ through a diverse range of art forms including music and theatre.

In addition to opening Plymouth History Month, Plymouth Festival of Words will bring three highly-celebrated headline acts (to be announced shortly), a rich community programme, and also includes for the first time the National Storytelling Gathering.

The festival is a partnership between Literature Works and Plymouth University through the Plymouth Literature Project, Peninsula Arts and Plymouth City Council (Arts & Heritage), and is supported by Arts Council England.

More information coming soon.
