IMPORTANT UPDATE: Unfortunately due to concerns about the COVID-19 virus, all external Literary Festival events have been cancelled for 2020. While this is a disappointing outcome for an event that so many were looking forward to, cancellation is the most appropriate action based on expert advice on the COVID-19 outbreak.

Anyone who purchased tickets to a session via our ticketing partner Humanitix, will be refunded appropriately.
