ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
Founded in 2003, Cambridge Literary Festival is one of Britain's freshest and friendliest literary festivals. We debate current issues, present literary greats alongside debut writers, host scientists, artists, politicians, comedians, historians, journalists, poets, and a vibrant programme of events for our younger audiences.

FESTIVAL DATES
27 May – 05 Jun 2022 (Watch anytime)

AONIA SAYS - DIGITAL PROGRAMME
The Cambridge Literary Festival’s Spring Edition saw a wonderful line-up of luminary authors taking to the physical and virtual stage. From Ali Smith discussing companionship in her latest novel, "Companion Piece", to Michael Morpurgo delighting us with an afternoon of music, storytelling and poetry, the festival most certainly did not disappoint. Catch up on all the action this May by watching recordings of the Festival’s online program, now available to purchase and view. Scroll down to find out more.
