The Literature Festival Bookshops

We’ve got all your reading needs covered at the Festival and in our 2021 online bookshop.

Through our partnership with Waterstones the UK’s leading specialist book retailer, we’ve got three bookstores across our Festival, with knowledgeable staff on hand to help you find the right book for you.

Our largest on site bookshop is located next to The Forum at the main Festival Village. Just a stone’s throw away within the Wild Wood area you’ll find our Family Bookshop. There are a host of events that take place during the Festival at Cheltenham Town Hall which is where our third Town Hall Bookshop can be found.

We’re also delighted to be able to bring you our virtual bookshop for all your reading needs delivered straight to your home.

Our thanks to Waterstones as every purchase you make whether in person or online supports the Festival and our year-round education and talent development programmes.
