15th – 17th June 2018, Sidmouth

The Sidmouth Literary Festival 2018

The Sidmouth Literary Festival is a must visit event for all those who love literature, writing, books and creative words in general. Running 15th to 17th June in 2018, it promises to once again bring some big names to the small town of Sidmouth.

This year, the crowds of people who visit the festival will get the privilege of welcoming famous names such as Nicholas Parsons (film, author, TV and radio star famed for Just A Minute), Kate Adie (veteran BBC correspondent) and the writing duo behind the leading thriller books by pseudonym Nicci French - Nicci Gerrard and Sean French. 

The events that take place over three days range from talks with authors to motivation on how to get your novels published. Many aspects of the festival are free, but events and workshops require tickets which can be purchased online

All the literary events will take place at Sidmouth's beautiful Georgian Kennaway House, in the heart of Sidmouth and just a short walk from The Victoria Hotel. We're therefore the perfect place to stay over the Sidmouth Literary Festival weekend. 

Whether you're a literary festival veteran or are looking to visit your first one this year, the Sidmouth event is a must visit.
