We’re 20!
From a tiny series of events back in 1998, the festival is now week-long book bonanza in October every year which takes over the city of Birmingham, which celebrates great writers, performers, thinkers and speakers.
This year we welcome Guardian journalist Gary Younge, Brum comedian Joe Lycett together with Jess Phillips MP, Booker Prize longlisted Kamila Shamsie, and Indian bestselling author Preeti Shenoy among many more exciting writers from all over the world. You can also participate in one of our workshops and special performances.
We’re looking forward to see you in October!
