Henley Literary Festival 2021

Founded in 2007, the Henley Literary Festival has firmly established itself as one of the UK's most popular literary festivals, bringing together punters and pundits from far and wide in an annual meeting-of-minds set across its stunning riverside hometown.

Now in its 14th year, Henley Literary Festival is established as one of the UK's biggest book festivals.

From 2-10 October we have over 120 events for adults & children taking place in Henley-on-Thames, with many also streamed live online.

Speakers include Hamilton Olivier-winner Giles Terera, No.1 Ladies' Detective Agency creator Alexander McCall Smith, We Need To Talk About Money author Otegha Uwagba, bestsellers Jill Mansell & Carol Kirkwood, military historian Max Hastings and Parent Trap star Hayley Mills.

And before the Festival itself, every Monday in September we have online-only events with John Lewis-Stempel, Cecelia Ahern, Michael Holding & many more.

Tickets are on general sale now, online at www.henleyliteraryfestival.co.uk and by phone on 01491 575 948.
