Situated in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on East Devon’s Jurassic Coast, Budleigh Salterton hosts South West England’s most outstanding literary festival. Our mission is to celebrate great writing with as wide an audience as possible.
The Festival has grown year upon year, consistently attracting leading thinkers, contemporary novelists, poets, travel writers, politicians, sports journalists, scientists, food writers, historians, economists and current affairs commentators.
The success of the Festival is reinforced by the continued support of its Honorary President, double Booker Prize winner Dame Hilary Mantel DBE.
As a registered charity, the Festival also has a commitment to support the work of new and emerging writers. We aim to foster and develop a love of words, stories, reading and writing. We also hope to inspire people of all backgrounds and ages to expand their horizons and explore new ideas.
The Festival in Numbers
With 65+ events packed into 5 days, the Festival reaches thousands of visitors, live and online, providing an opportunity to communicate brand messages to an engaged and receptive audience, and a wider consumer base through our databases and media partnerships.
