programme-coverWe hope you enjoyed it!

From July 5-8, more than 50 events were held around Penzance for the eighth Penzance Literary Festival. We have had some lovely feedback from both speakers and audiences.
Thank you to everyone who helped make it a great success – stewards, speakers, workshop leaders and our customers.
Please join our newsletter mailing list to stay up to date with news and events. We will be holding a special Litfest quiz in the Autumn, with more details to follow.
In the meantime, you can relive the Litfest as event photos have now been added.
