Isle of Wight Literary Festival

Our second year of supporting this homegrown literary festival that is now firmly on the map for the Literati.

Now in its seventh year, the festival’s programme has grown to include a wide range of speakers and events. Hosted at Northwood House in Cowes over four days, this year more than 60 writers and presenters will share their works via speeches, interviews and conversation.

The festival’s Youth Programme, set up four years ago and now with the majority of Island schools participating, helps to enrich education for the under 18s on the Island. As a charity the event relies on the support of sponsors and benefactors and the event is staffed by volunteers. We are delighted to be able once again to support its growing popularity.
