Welcome to Ilkley Literature Festival!

We are the longest-running literature festival in the north and we celebrate all things reading and writing.

Want to check out some of our work? We are launching our Spring 2021 programme on Thursday 18 March! Nine specially curated talks will be broadcast free online over the weekend of Saturday 27-Sun 28 March, and will then be available to view on catch up until 30 April.
