Countdown to HLF2021
We are fundraising – any donation made before 31 January 2021 will be doubled by One Community Foundation and entered into a prize draw to win a signed framed Sir Patrick Stewart poster or one of our exciting book bundles. Your donation is not only about bringing bestselling authors to Huddersfield, we also take authors into schools, offer free family activities, run creative writing and wellbeing workshops, host Autism friendly events and support emerging and under-represented performers.
COMING IN MARCH 2021
…an exciting programme of online events from 18-28 March. Followed by indoor and outdoor events later in the spring/summer.
NOTE: Our events with Amanda Owen and Anne Choma will be rescheduled for later this year, once it becomes safe to run them. Please hold on to your tickets, which will remain valid, or you can request a refund – click below for more information:

Diversity and Representation at HLF
The Huddersfield Literature Festival (HLF) fully and unequivocally supports the Black Lives Matter movement.
