The Independent Bath Literature Festival

Launched in 1995, the Bath Literature Festival has become one of the UK's best known festivals for stimulating debate, lively conversation and fascinating authors insights.

Taking place annually over 9 days in February/March, and using The Guildhall in Bath as its base, the Festival seeks to make you think whilst it entertains, with unique events pairing like-minded authors, dynamic debates on topical issues, and specially commissioned work by leading contemporary writers. Far from a stop-off for authors on their annual promotional tours around the nations' bookshops, this Festival gives you a chance to discuss and explore ideas relevant to their literature and to life today.
