Isle of Wight Literary Festival 2020

8 Oct - 11 Oct 2020

The Isle of Wight Literary Festival is an established event on the UK Arts calendar. It provides a far-reaching eclectic programme designed to attract a wide audience and increase the cultural richness of the Isle of Wight.

Hosted at Northwood House, Cowes over a number of days 60+ writers and presenters will share their latest works. Topics includes crime fiction, history, travel, maritime adventure, gardening, medicine, technology and the social and political issues of our time. From first time novelists to seasoned historians – speakers passionate about their subject will share insights and information.

The Youth Programme was set up by the festival a number of years ago to enrich education for the under 18s on the Isle of Wight by increasing the cultural experiences available to stimulate interest in learning and creative ideas. The majority of Island schools now participate in the programme.
