How can get involved with the LitFest?

Through the year, our team works extremely hard behind-the-scenes to deliver a successful Penzance Literary Festival.

Team, trustees and stewards

We always need help with the smooth running of the LitFest:

  • Organising team: we need more enthusiastic, reliable people to help plan and deliver the LitFest
  • Trustees: two new trustees are currently sought to bring oversight to the LitFest
  • Stewards: enthusiastic helpers are always needed for our events to help our visitors

If you would like to get involved with team or trustees, please email

For helping with event stewarding, please email
