Programme & Tickets 2017

Our 2017 festival programme is HERE!

The Worcestershire LitFest and Fringe team are gearing up for their biggest year yet. With a programme packed full of entertaining events over our festival week, our seventh festival is set to be a crackin’ one.

Sticking with tradition, our festival will open with the crowning of Worcestershire’s new Poet Laureate for 2017/2018 and we will move from one high to the next after our launch with poetry, prose, and lovely literary treats galore!
