The Ilminster Literary Festival, now in its fourth year, was set up to offer local people of all ages in Ilminster and the surrounding areas an exciting and enjoyable opportunity to meet a variety of authors, editors, and script writers through discussion, talks and meetings, at affordable prices.

The Festivals have been well supported by local people, businesses, the Library, Friends and Sponsors, and by generous donations from Ilminster Town Council, SSDC, The Gooch Charitable Trust, The Ilminster Educational Foundation, and Tesco Stores. All of these contributions have enabled the Festival to build year on year, with well known speakers appearing from across the UK and even further.

The Trustees are sure you will find something to enjoy and interest you in the programme details here.

Don’t leave it too late to book – some events will sell out quickly.
