Welcome to the Havant Literary Festival - celebrating the written and spoken word in the Borough of Havant.


We are pleased to announce that the 7th annual Havant Literary Festival will take place from 3rd to 12th October 2014. We are planning something even bigger this year, so please sign up to our email list to get regular news of what is happening.

We are pleased to confirm that Will Self will be appearing at the festival this year. An evening with Will Self is scheduled to take place at the Spring on the final Saturday of the Festival. We are delighted also to report that the renowned theatre company Propeller are back for the second year running with two performances of their Pocket Henry V at the Spring on Friday 10th October. A case of "once more into the breach dear friends".


This year, as part of our new closer partnership with The Spring we are planning a series of literary events on Friday evenings. The first of these will be a celebration of the poetry of romantic love, to be held on 14th February. Do come along with your partner or as a single and enjoy a poetic romantic experience, enhanced with a glass of chilled Prosecco.

Thank you,

Tim Dawes
