It’s hard to believe that nine years have passed since the first Penzance Literary Festival set out its stall in 2010. Since then, we’ve been dubbed ‘the friendliest LitFest in the UK’ and are proud to have become a much-anticipated annual celebration of the written and spoken word. And celebrate we will with the ‘LitFest at 10’ Launch Party! 

Our patron Patrick Gale will cut the metaphorical ribbon to start the evening off and we have some surprise guests up our sleeves too. There’ll also be a display of your favourite moments and memories. And then you can tap your feet to the many rhythyms of Cornwall’s unique 7-piece trio (sic) Gwelhellin, starring multi-instrumental Melody Maker Top Soloist Jonathon X Coudrille, guitarist Anthonius Apple and percussionist dangereux David Painter. 

Ticket includes canapes and one free drink.
