Set against the backdrop of the beautiful River Fowey estuary the Festival provides the very best of literature and the arts; talks, interviews, exhibitions, presentations, theatre, music, creative writing workshops, reading groups, literary luncheons, trails, guided walks and river cruises to enjoy, inform, challenge and inspire the imagination!
The Festival is an opportunity for locals and visitors alike to explore why the area has been a rich source of material for so many writers. Join the intimate gatherings when novelists bring their works to life through workshops and reading groups.
Join us for an evening of classical or jazz music or watch a live theatre performance, exquisitely performed.
The countryside around the town’s magnificent harbour is the setting for guided walks and river cruises that take in many locations which have been an inspiration for famous novelists like Daphne du Maurier, Arthur Quiller-Couch, Leo Walmsley and Wind in the Willows author Kenneth Grahame.
