Wordfest - Free Family & Community Events

Free Family & Community Events

As well as our ticketed talks, we have planned a whole weekend of free community and family events, all designed to engage you with the word and inspire the writers and artists in you.

On top of this, throughout all of Saturday and Sunday, there will be pop-up performances by local poets and musicians as well as free workshops and craft activities designed for all ages. So bring the whole family along and be part of the conversation.
