York Literature Festival is returning with a day of online events.
Like many events this year, York Literature Festival has had to adapt to working around the pandemic – and adapt it has by bringing a virtual celebration of the written and spoken word!
The online literature festival will take place on Saturday, 17 October, in association with MyVLF and Arts Council England. The best part? Every event on the day will be FREE.
All you need to do is to register with MyVLF before the events – which is also free – and then visit the website in time on the day. Don’t worry if you can’t join in on the day, the events will still be available on the MyVLF website to enjoy in your own time. For more information on the day and how to book your free tickets please visit the York Literature Festival website.
York Literature Festival began in 2007 and has since grown to become one of the leading literature festivals in the North of England. In 2016 the festival succeeded in achieving charitable status. Its aim is to deliver a high-quality literature festival for York and the North East while simultaneously providing a showcase for local writing talent.
The festival has previously hosted a range of authors, artists and celebrities such as Simon Armitage, Tony Benn, Baroness Warsi, Lucy Worsley and Michael Palin to name a few. York Literature Festival also prides itself on having a diverse range of events – some examples being talks, lectures, panels, performances and workshops.
Of course, not all of these events can be possible this year, due to the festival being contained to one day of online events; however there’s still plenty of exciting events featuring immense literary talent to look forward to. From poetry, to history, to performance there is something for everyone.
Take a look to see what’s in store…
