Join us for an annual celebration of books and authors, poetry and performance.
Major authors and multi-arts events, comedy and creative writing, performance poetry and a Free Family Day – whatever you enjoy, you’ll find it here at the Huddersfield Literature Festival.
Our award-winning Festival takes place over 10 days in venues across Huddersfield, with community, accessibility and inclusivity at its heart.
We welcome performers and audiences from all sectors of society and many events are free or low-cost. There are events with live subtitling by Stagetext for those who are deaf, deafened and hard of hearing, and DisabledGo Access Guides to key venues.
Meet your favourite authors, discover new talent, hone your own skills or simply come along and enjoy the entertainment on offer.
