Because we are not just Betjeman….

Originally a celebration of all things Betjeman, the Wantage Literary Festival is now a collection of events covering literature, poetry, comedy, history, science, the arts and much more. Held during the October school holiday, the festival is dedicated to promoting the written (and spoken) word in all its forms. The Festival is organised by a Festival Director and run by a team of local volunteers. In addition to the main Festival week of events we also run a lively charitable schools’ programme and host various Quiz Nights throughout the year.
