Chester’s annual celebration of the written word will fill Storyhouse with two weeks of unmissable events, performances and conversation this autumn. Special guests include writers, poets, actors and broadcasts.
We are delighted to announce our 2022 Chester Literature Festival full line up, welcoming some of the world’s most exciting writers, poets and thinkers to Storyhouse this autumn. Origin stories and how our childhoods shape who we are is a running theme in this year’s festival.
With extraordinary stories of determination and hope in the face of discrimination and adversity from some of the UK’s biggest cultural heroes David Harewood, Lemn Sissay and Kit de Waal. You can even create your own origin story in our re-inventing British political superheroes workshop.
Literary heavy weights Jodi Picoult, Jennifer Finney Boylan, Clare Mackintosh and Patrick Gale join us to discuss their latest books and aspiring writers will enjoy our debut writers panel and our flash fiction events.
Our brilliant Storyhouse library team have a myriad of free events that can help you find your next great read – go on a blind date with a book or come along to our book pharmacy for a literary remedy for your maladies.
Or if you like to party with your poetry then look no further than our Poetry Pub Crawl, Cocktails and Cinquains and Luke Wright’s Dance Floor Filler events. With a bumper programme of brilliant authors, workshops, panel discussions, performances and literary themed events we have something for everyone. We’ll see you there!
