Wells Festival of Literature

Business Image


The Festival is a registered charity entirely run by a committee of volunteers, and is funded by ticket sales, competition entries and our generous local sponsors and Friends. The first Festival ran for a weekend and has grown ever since. In 2002 we expanded to a week; we now operate over nine days every October and will celebrate our 30th anniversary in 2022. Our Festival takes place in Cedars Hall, a state-of-the-art performance venue situated in the beautiful grounds of Wells Cathedral School.
