Sidmouth Literary Festival 2018

A must visit event for all those who love literature, writing, books and creative words in general, Sidmouth Literary Festival promises to once again bring some big names to the small town of Sidmouth.

This year, the crowds of people who visit the festival will get the privilege of welcoming people like Nicholas Parsons (film, author, TV and radio star famous for Just A Minute), Kate Adie (veteran BBC correspondent) and the writing duo behind the leading thriller books by pseudonym Nicci French - Nicci Gerrard and Sean French. 

The talks that take place over three days range from talks to sessions on how to get your own books published. Many aspects of the festival are free, but events and workshops require tickets which can be purchased online

All the literary events will take place at Sidmouth's beautiful Georgian Kennaway House, right in the heart of Sidmouth, and just a short walk from The Belmont Hotel. Therefore we're the perfect place to stay over the Sidmouth Literary Festival weekend. 

Whether you're a literary festival veteran or are looking to visit your first one this year, the Sidmouth event is not to be missed.
