Looking forward to Shrewsbury Festival of Literature 2021!
This year I look forward to welcoming people back to some of the really cracking events we have scheduled for this year's Festival.
Last year was a tough time for Festivals and, as a result, SFL ended up holding a smaller, virtual festival. All in all, it went really well and all of us at SFL are very grateful to the authors and poets that took part: Nick Hayes, Sarah Ward, Lisa Blower, Fred D'Aguiar and the Poets, Prattlers and Pandemonialists who run the Poetry Slam. And congratulations to Gerald Kells, who emerged as Winner of the Slam and who will, hopefully, be performing at this year's Festival.
This year we are planning to be back "in the flesh", so to speak. We have a great programme of events for you. Check out our Events' listing
We will, of course, keep a clear eye on things with regards to the Covid situation and let you know of any changes, if they occur.
