Tunbridge Wells Literary Festival

Tunbridge Wells Literary Festival returns in 2024 from Thursday 9th - Sunday 12th May!

With last year's festival attracting over 5000 people to the town, across 44 events, Lit Fest '24 is set yet again to enthral and engage, whether you love books or simply have a curious mind. Events will be held in the Assembly Hall Theatre, The Amelia Scott, The Forum, Trinity Theatre and The Marquee in Calverley Grounds.

Headlining this year's Literary Festival will be the Radio 2 star and West End legend Michael Ball, with his funny and insightful first memoir Different Aspects.  Also headlining will be comedy pioneer Lenny Henry, who with his customary warmth and wit, will be guiding audiences through his career in the 1980s and 90s in the wonderfully immersive memoir Rising to the Surface. In conversation with Lenny will be the popular newsreader and presenter Clive Myrie.  Completing our current list of headliners is travel guru and national treasure Michael Palin, discussing his new book Great Uncle Harry: A Tale of War and Empire.

Over the coming weeks, the full cast of authors and illustrators will be revealed, ranging from internationally acclaimed industry veterans to the local, the young and the new, and it promises once again to be a festival that truly delivers something for everyone!
