Announcing: Penarth Literary Festival 2022!

We are so excited to announce the return of Penarth Literary Festival for 2022! From 18-26 June we'll be holding an event every day (with a special addition on 2 July!), and these range between fiction and non-ficition, English and Welsh and are aimed at both adults and children. This year especially we have focused on Welsh authors and stories in particular, to celebrate the exceptional talent in our country! 


This year's festival falls in with Independent Bookshop Week, which is celebrated by bookshops across the UK, and highlights the vital role independent bookshops play in their community. We wanted to celebrate with OUR community by bringing you authors such as Caryl Lewis, Tessa Hadley and Katherine Stansfield, and great events, such as another of our famous literary quizzes and the return of the Poetry Showcase, hosted by Penarth local poet Stephen Payne, plus much more! 


We hope you'll be able to join us and enjoy some of these brilliant events. Make sure to check out the option to become a Friend of Festival, which gives you access to every event for free, discount on festival book purchases and other exclusive perks!
