2023 was another amazing festival, with a host of authors, poets and artists joining us in Stroud. We were delighted to welcome Clive Myrie, Cressida Cowell, Nina Stibbe, Rob Biddulph, Gillian Clarke, Joseph Coelho, and many more this past November. We were so honoured to hold our second annual Laurie Lee Prize for Writing as our Festival Finale and are already making plans for the 2024 competition.

For up to date information on the festival and the events we are planning for 2024, please sign up to our newsletter below, and follow us on social media.

Thank you for joining us and watch this space for 2024!
