Budleigh Salterton Literary Festival celebrates its 10th anniversary in 2018 with a brilliant line-up of fascinating, innovative writers. Programme announced 28th June 2018.

In the meantime, check out our fantastic line-up of authors who appeared at our 2017 Literary Festival.

In 2018, we celebrate 10 years of the Festival with our biggest programme yet of excellent and eclectic programme of speakers. This year we’ve also extended our range of workshops so you can learn some useful new skills, plus we have even more events for children.  And all this beside the sea at Budleigh Salterton in the balmy days of September.

Budleigh Salterton Literary Festival is a powerful blend of challenging debate, inspiring ideas, new fiction, and best-selling, award-winning writing combined with a warm and welcoming atmosphere, making it one of the most exciting and burgeoning literary festivals in the UK.
