Welcome to the Bradford Literature Festival, hailed as one of the most inspirational and inclusive festivals in the UK. With over 500 events packed into iconic venues across 10 days, we celebrate the written and spoken word in all its wonderful forms. Every year we invite world-renowned authors, poets, speakers, musicians and artists to visit our spectacular city and share their knowledge and passions with you, the audience. Drawing visitors from far and wide to West Yorkshire, Bradford truly is the place to be from 26th June – 5th July 2020. We look forward to seeing you there!
