Huddersfield Literary Festival

 Full details 

Huddersfield Literature Festival (HLF) is an award-winning two-week Festival held annually in the spring. A blended Festival of around 70 digital, outdoor and venue-based events held online and at accessible spaces in Huddersfield, HuddLitFest champions accessibility, diversity and under-represented groups.

Showcasing emerging writers and artists alongside major names, the Festival offers a diverse programme of author talks, workshops, discussion topics, performance poetry, multi-arts performances, wellbeing projects, events for young people and family friendly events.

Our Aims & Objectives, first set out in 2013, were recalibrated by the Steering Committee in 2023 to the following:

It’s 2028 and we are proud that…

  1. HLF represents the diverse population of Huddersfield in both performer and visitor demographics with accessible events supported by diverse partners and community groups.
  2. HLF is a multi-award-winning Festival with an excellent reputation for good practice that attracts high-profile authors and performers from across the UK whilst spotlighting our region’s local talent.
  3. HLF is a sustainable and environmentally responsible Festival that brings important ideas and issues to new audiences through engagement with literature in interesting and accessible ways.
