From our Artistic Director

Dear Friends

We're up and running! The programme for this year's literary week was revealed at launch events on Friday 1 October, and as such we are now on sale with all 38 events that together go to make up the 11th Petworth Festival Literary Week.

More than ever we hope we are appealing to every kind of readership and trust that we will see you at some point over the 9 days that we run. And just to remind you, very much by popular demand we are recording and streaming a majority of this year's events as we appreciate that we can't expect everyone to put every hour of every day aside over the course of the festival week. As it is, you will be able to attend either in person between 30th October and 7th November or at your leisure up until 28th November. Full details can of course be found on the website...

We look forward to seeing you at the end of the month - and, as ever, a HUGE thank you to our sponsors, our Friends and our volunteers. Petworth Festival is genuinely a shared effort.

Stewart Collins
Artistic Director
