About

Welcome to the third Bury St Edmunds Literature Festival, a feast of all thing literary in this most beautiful of all towns!

There must be something literary in the air of Bury St Edmunds. Many talented authors were either born here or now live here and we are delighted that many of them are appearing at this year’s festival.

Message from our Patrons, Mike & Judy Spenser-Morris

“We were honoured to be asked to be patrons of the inaugural Bury St Edmunds Literature Festival in 2017 and having seen the remarkable success of that event, we were delighted when invited to support the Festival again this year. 

As avid readers, we feel a particular affinity with the Festival’s desire to bring so many wonderful authors to Bury St Edmunds to talk about their work. Our incredible town, that has such a depth of history, seems to be the perfect setting for a Literature Festival and we thank you wholeheartedly for your incredible efforts in again bringing it to fruition. 

We wish you – and all those who have put so much effort into arranging the event – huge success. May there be many more BSE Literature Festivals in the future.”
