Literature Festival

This year Streatham Arts Festival has an exciting new offering for our community. Art and music have long been a key part of the festival, but literature is about to join the mix!

From local to big name authors, writing competitions, poetry and spoken word, as well as opportunities to meet authors, get bespoke advice from booksellers and librarians on choosing the perfect book for you or your child, and have access to talks on getting published, Streatham Literature Festival has something for everyone. Check out our programme of events for the line-up and tickets.

At the moment, most of events are planned to take place live in venues around Streatham, with online streaming options for those who can’t or don’t want to risk coming out.

We could not produce the festival without the help of our volunteers. If you would like to be part of the team curating and running the literature festivalplease contact Hannah at
