The organisers are working hard to ensure the safety of visitors and staff. To comply with COVID-19 venue guidelines, less tickets will be on sale this year and a digital programme is available for those who are shielding. Please note that arrangements are subject to change with government COVID-19 guidance and the programme may become fully digital if the need arises. See list of measures taken.

Cllr John Coombs, Lead Member for Culture for Richmond Council, said:

"We are all really pleased that this year's Literature Festival is going ahead. Although some events may be online, it's still a cracking line up of interesting literary marvels!

"Continue to learn whilst schools were closed and provided everyone with a source of escapism.

"So, join us this Literature Festival to celebrate the power of literature!".
