What did the teachers and pupils say about our Festival in 2018?

My class would like to say a massive thank you for putting on such a wonderful event! We loved coming and getting to spend a whole day thinking about books.


I have been bringing children to the Cheltenham Literature Festival for at least a decade. It is such a brilliant event for children to see and meet authors, inspiring them in their own writing. It is always well organised, with the children at the heart of it all.


I’ve had the best day and I loved the workshop and the book signing was awesome.


The Times and The Sunday Times Cheltenham Literature Festival 2019 is on 4 – 13 October.
