YLF at Residents Festival Weekend



This weekend sees York’s 25th Residents Festival. And yes, we’ll be there, encouraging you to celebrate the written and spoken word!

YLF2020 itself is only weeks away. If you’ve not yet picked up a brochure, come and meet us and find out what’s on offer. We’ll be at York Explore Library and Archive in Library Square from 10am to 4pm on Saturday and from 11am to 3pm on Sunday.

And don’t forget we have two very special pre-festival events in prospect.

On Friday 31 January we welcome Sophie Hannah, the internationally bestselling author of crime fiction. Join her at The Centre@Burnholme at 7pm as she discusses her latest novel, Haven’t They Grown. If you’re into crime (in a good way!) this is simply a must. To book tickets, click here.

And at 7pm on Saturday 1 February at Temple Hall, we’re delighted to present LGBTQ campaigner Matthew Todd, author of Pride : From Stonewall to the Present as he tells the story of the LGBTQ equality movement. As part of our Arts Council funded diversity programme for 2020, this special event headlines the opening day of York LGBTQ History Month so do come along and hear what promises to be a compelling history.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
