This year Shrewsbury Festival of Literature takes place over the weekend of 24th to 26th November!  Once again we plan to show our beautiful town in its best light by holding nearly all of our events within the loop of the Severn in some of the most interesting venues that Shrewsbury has to offer.

From Friday 24th to Sunday 26th there will be a range of different events - from talks and workshops to storytelling and poetry. If you love reading, stories, books or poetry then Shrewsbury's Festival of Literature is somewhere you need to be - so put the date in your diary!

More information will follow very soon on our exciting programme.
