30 Sep Crickhowell Literary Festival 1st-9th Oct 2016

Now in its second year, The Crickhowell Literary Festival is gaining a great reputation. Stretching across 9 days, from the 1st to the 9th October, the festival promises to keep Crick on the map for all who visit.

A celebration of Welsh identity and culture, this year’s programme spans centuries, genres and interests. Held across sites in Crickhowell, including pubs, churches, civic buildings, shops and the library, there are talks and workshops on a huge variety of subjects including painting, creative writing, chocolate making, printing. book making, origami, foraging, and the inside story of cooking from local celebrity chef Stephen Terry (of the Hardwick).

There are talks from Nigel Owens and Eddie Butler (rugby fans rejoice), the director of the RSC, Bill Alexander and workshops from crime writers MR Hall and Sophie Hannah, alongside tips to get published from Alison Baverstock.

Find out more about the workshops, talks and events on the website.
