'in conversation'
events 

Welcome to the first ever Crouch End Literary Festival, featuring Linda Grant, Peter Bradshaw (author and Guardian film critic), Mathew Baynton (comedian, actor writer, Horrible Histories and Ghosts), Dave Cohen, Rohan Candappa and a long list of local writers. Listen, learn and be inspired! And most events are FREE. 

 

Crouch End Literary Festival is run by the Crouch End Festival team, in association with Dave Cohen, Hornsey Library, Friends of Hornsey Library and Waterstones Crouch End.

The hub will be Hornsey Library but we are also running talks, workshops, recitals and performances plus novel events across the area in a variety of venues including: Waterstones, Holy Innocents, The Intimates Space (St Mary’s Tower), Art House, The Green, The Stapleton, All Good Bookshop and various pop-up venues.

 

Summer festival favourite, Poets in the Phone Box featuring Alan Wolfson makes a return. And the Great Letter Hunt – can you find the 26 letters around Crouch End?

Words & Music is a night of improvised music to spoken word in the Holy Eye (Holy Innocents) featuring writers and musicians.

 

The Crouch End Players will perform NO QUARTER by local legend Barry Bermange, across all three nights at the Intimate Space (St Mary’s Tower).

 

We have workshops on creative writing, self-publishing, comedy writing. Talks on Writing with AI, and a focus on Dyslexic writers featuring Sam Rapp the ‘Dyslexic Poet’ and Dr Chris Arnold, dyslexic and founder of Dyversity Lab. 

We are sure there is something for everyone, whatever your taste.
