Yeovil Literary Festival 2020!

We are thrilled to announce the return of Yeovil Literary Festival, with three days of authors taking to the stage at Westlands Entertainment Venue between the 30 October - 1 November 2020. 

This year will be a little different to normal, with a socially distanced festival taking place using the sofa setup that has been working incredibly well for screenings at Westlands Entertainment Venue.

The festival may be smaller, but the events are guaranteed to be better than ever, with iconic and prestigious authors taking to the stage throughout the weekend.

Coming this October:

Friday Festival Highlights

On Friday the 30th of October,  Elly Griffiths, Rachel Joyce, Lucy Worsley & Raynor Winn will be discussing their work.

Yeovil Literary Festival - Saturday Festival Highlights

On Saturday the 31st of October,  Abir Mukherjee & Vaseem Khan, Carrie Hope Fletcher & Jenni Murray will be discussing their work. 

 Yeovil Literary Festival - Sunday Festival Highlights

On Sunday 1st of November, Hamish De Bretton-Gordon, Katherine May & Jonathan Coe will be presenting their work.
