A very warm welcome to the Guernsey Literary Festival. It’s thanks to you, our wonderful audience, that the Festival has grown to become one of the most eagerly anticipated events in Guernsey. With events for all interests and ages, the Festival is a unique opportunity to come together to celebrate the written word.

The festival attracts speakers from a wide range of disciplines, from literature to politics, from history to sport, from the environment to food, from biography to travel. We also organise a full education and community programme, together with workshops for local writers with renowned visiting authors. The Guernsey Literary Festival is a not for profit organisation and registered charity, run by volunteers and is supported by generous and committed sponsors, patrons, members and partners.
