Over the last 5 years SFL has been blessed with support from a wide ranging number of local businesses and will always be thankful for that.
Last year we managed to put on a shortened, 'virtual' festival and were fortunate to receive sponsorship and support from the organisations shown below (and one or two others) and, for that help, we are truly grateful.
However, the Committee would like to offer heartfelt thanks to all those organisations and people who had faith that we would be able to bring the idea of a Shrewsbury Fesitival of Literature to fruition and who have continued to support us since 2016 when it all began. We simply would not be here without you.
Planning for SFL 2021 is well underway and, given none of us know what things will be like then, we plan to give it our best shot. The programme of events is 98% confirmed and it's looking good!
If you would like to offer support (which can be in financial or practical terms) please do not hesitate to contact us. We will do our best to promote any business or individual that wants to help us bring the Shrewsbury Festival of Literature to life each year!
Our Partners and Sponsors
Located on Fish Street in the heart of the town, Pengwern Books has been serving book lovers in Shrewsbury and beyond for 15 years. With a small but carefully curated stock, readers will find something different from the mainstream on the shelves and what isnt in the shop can be quickly ordered. More importantly Pengwern Books offers a first class browsing experience. Browsing is something that online retailers and the big chains just dont so as well, if at all. And on top of that Pengwerns small coffee shop, Cafe 14, creates a small, calm space to rest, read and chat while you enjoy great coffee and cake.

Severn Business Network is a group of individuals representing local businesses throughout Shrewsbury, Telford and Shropshire. While we're all seriously-minded about our businesses, and are members of this group primarily to generate opportunities, we're also a perfectly normal bunch who enjoy each other's company in a social environment too - often taking part in some great fund raising events or just heading out for a jolly! Having had experiences within a multitude of other styles of networking groups, SBN was originally formed a decade ago using what we considered to be the strongest elements of these groups, and leaving behind the parts which have seen so many others fail over the years. The group is run by its members, for its members and has seen literally millions of pounds of business generated over the years.
