The 18th Bridport Literary Festival 2022 is scheduled for Sunday 6 – Saturday 12 November and we hope to bring a varied and exciting programme of events to lighten the dark days of Winter. Keep in touch with our progress both on the website and social media and we look forward to welcoming audiences of all interests and ages to Bridlit 2022 – a true celebration for all those who read books and love literature.

Last year was a bumper year for BridLit and we were delighted to see so many of our Friends and Supporters at events that attracted large audiences from all corners of the county and much further afield. This year we are hosting an even larger programme which we hope will appeal to all tastes as well as children and young people.
