Milton Keynes Literary Festival

A fabulous festival of books, words, writers and ideas that celebrates everything literary, bookish or wordy

We are sorry to announce that – sadly but we hope understandably – we will not be proceeding with MK Lit Fest 2020 this October. Our primary concern is, of course, the safety of our audience members, authors and the Festival team. While we hope that the situation will have improved by October, this cannot currently be guaranteed: to proceed at this time would be irresponsible.

In the meantime, we're looking at ways of bringing MK's lovers of words, books and ideas together online. If you'd like to have your say in how we might do this, read on.
