Discover a unique celebration of the written and spoken word...

Celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2017, the Stratford Lit Fest offers a mix of events with celebrity and best-selling authors, new writers, workshops, and events for families deigned to inspire and spread over 8 packed days.

With all events inspired by books and a love of reading, we offer masterclasses for new writers, and the chance to hear a varied and fascinating range of topics including history, nature, cookery, gardening, mental health, illustration, music, humour, all set in our festival hub with a café and pop up Waterstones bookshop.

Buy signed copies of books, and meet your favourite authors as well as household names. For kids, we offer a day of events exclusively for children with craft workshops, face painting and storytelling and, for 2017, Horrible Histories Barmy Britain, hot foot from its West End run.
