Counting Down to Stroud Book Festival 2024

Save the Dates for 2024 6 - 10 November

We had a blast at Stroud Book Festival 2023!

We were thrilled to welcome a host of authors to Stroud, including Clive Myrie, Cressida Cowell, Nina Stibbe, Rob Biddulph, Gillian Clarke, Joseph Coelho, along with a bevy of local writers. And we held our second annual Laurie Lee Prize for Writing, announcing our worthy 2023 winners as part of our Festival Finale.

Thank you to everyone who bought tickets and supported our annual celebration of stories, ideas and community - we couldn't do it without you.

We're already hard at work planning Stroud Book Festival 2024. Please highlight the dates - 6-10 November - in your diaries! For all the latest Festival news you can sign up to our newsletter below, and follow us on social media.
