Chipping Norton Literary Festival will be returning from 21 – 24 April 2016. We will be hosting a range of events for readers, writers, children and young people, illustrators, poetry fans, school pupils. We will be working alongside our partner bookshop, Jaffé & Neale, the Chipping Norton Theatre, our sponsors, funders and Festival Friends to create four days of wonderful literary events throughout Chipping Norton.
Can't wait till ChipLitFest 2016? We are delighted to announce that, in partnership with Jaffé & Neale bookshop & café, we will be hosting an evening with award-winning, best-selling author Sebastian Faulks. Full details of this event can be found here.
With more than 50 events to choose from, ChipLitFest 2015 offered something for everyone - from crime to sport, poetry to illustration - and all in the beautiful town on Chipping Norton. Our schedule for 2016 promises more of the same, so make sure you have signed up to our newsletter for a first look at the programme.
