Virtual Lavenham Literary Festival
Start Date: 30 July 2020
End Date: 30 September 2020


Find a packed virtual programme for all ages with readings, how-to-draw videos, quizzes, making and baking and so much more.  

All the Festival's extra-special authors who would have visited the festival in 2020 are represented and some of the content is made especially for the online festival.  

Michael Morpurgo is interviewed by Clare Mulley and reads from some of his work.  Zeb Soanes and James Mayhew are back with more stories about Gaspard the Fox, with music from Chris Warner, and Rob Starling returns with Fergal the much-loved dragon. Anne-Marie Howell tells us about her tales of mystery set in and around Bury St Edmunds.  

Shoo Rayner, a regular visitor to the children’s festival, has a new book out about Walker the boy who can talk to dogs, Charlotte Sebag-Montefiore will turn you into an expert on dinosaurs.

All this is free and available at 


Next year's Lavenham Literary Festival is due to take place
