The 2018 Wells Festival of Literature will run from Friday 19 October to Saturday 27 October

We are delighted to announce a brand new venue for our 26th Festival: Cedars Hall, a superb state-of-the-art performance facility at the heart of our beautiful mediaeval city, will provide a fitting location for a programme that is diverse, challenging, entertaining and inspiring. In 2018 our aims – to encourage a love of literature and to develop that passion from an early age – remain unchanged.
