Welcome to Bridlit Wednesday 4th - Saturday 7th November 2020 Welcome to the
Bridport Literary Festival
The Hundred Acre Wood The Hundred Acre Wood in Lockdown: a whimsical response to lockdown, written and read by Nicola Leader. We thought that BridLit audiences might enjoy this lighthearted piece which so cleverly captures a universal experience, in a genre we are all so warmly familiar with.  WATCH


In spite of the hazardous year we have all had to face, the 16th Bridport Literary Festival is ‘LIVE’!

We have a stellar cast of writers who still wish to be with us in Bridport from Wednesday 4th – Saturday 6th November to inspire, energise and entertain all those who read books and love literature.  Events will rotate between the Electric Palace and the Bridport Arts Centre and will conform to Covid 19 protocol in order to protect our audiences, our writers and ourselves from engaging with the virus.  We have worked tirelessly to ensure the safety of everyone, and information is contained within the brochure.
