Burnley Words Festival

Your tall tales, your long reads, the lyrics of that song that plays on repeat in your head and that book you just can’t put down… Burnley Words Festival covers it all.

Taking place from Friday 16th June – Sunday 2nd July, the event will feature a range of activities including workshops, readings, stalls, exhibitions and performances across a whole host of town centre venues and locations.

A number of sessions and shows have already been scheduled in, such as writing workshops for authors, theatre productions for children and a poetry walk, while more elements are set to be added over the coming weeks.

The aim of the event is to encourage people of all ages to celebrate Burnley and enjoy stories, poems and performances in their own way and tap into the topics that they are passionate about.
