What to Expect This Year

We are excited to be producing, for the first time, a hybrid festival of both in-person and online events. Our Autumn 2021 programme comprises 70+ events including a dedicated digital events weekend, ‘live’ in-person interviews, talks and panel discussions with authors, writers and poets on stage in Ilkley, and the opportunity to experience some of these live events from home via live-streaming.

When planning this programme, the health and wellbeing of our audiences, writers, volunteers and staff has been at the forefront of our minds. You’ll notice some changes to your experience of attending venues and booking your tickets. You can read all of the key information using the buttons below.
