Looking Ahead in 2021.


 In what has been a difficult time, York Literature Festival looks ahead to a more positive 2021.
York Literature Festival would like to take this opportunity to officially thank our partners and sponsors for their continued support during the tumultuous months of 2020. Despite the cancellation of the festival, we enjoyed the opportunity to move our events online with the one-day mini festival in October and the online launch of the book Pilgrim Lost, by festival-friend and York-based author Tim Murgatroyd. 

Whilst it is with regret that we officially announce that there will not be a festival in March 2021, due to the continued proliferation of Coronavirus, York Literature Festival hopes to return later in the year with a selection of online events and the return of our face-to-face offering as soon as government restrictions allow us to do so and our partner venues are happy to resume.  

Therefore, please keep in touch and keep your eyes peeled for further announcements from us as 2021 progresses. Events will be announced when they are confirmed and organised. We will see you soon and remain positive for some live York Literature Festival events at some time in 2021! Plus, this gives us lots of time to plan for 2022!
