Launched in 2009 with 65 authors, the Festival has grown continually and, in 2017, hosted over 185 authors from 37 countries to entertain and educate 44,000 visitors.

The Festival places home-grown talent centre-stage and offers local fans the chance to interact with world famous authors, attend literary debates and workshops and participate in competitions.

The Festival’s education outreach programme gives students the chance to meet their literary heroes.
