Ilminster Literary Festival

About Us
Established in 2016 and enthusiastically supported by the local community, ILF Friends, sponsors, advertisers and venue partners, the Ilminster Literary Festival has become an annual highlight in the town, with something for everyone. ILF supports and includes the wider arts as well as literature. Past Festivals have featured authors, journalists, politicians, figures from across the arts and both national and local speakers. Dedicated events for children are included. 2023 will be the 7th Festival and planning for next June is ongoing, with publication of the complete programme due next spring. Please make a note of the 2023 Festival dates (June 1-8) and look out for more information on this site and around Ilminster nearer Festival time.
