The Buckingham Literary Festival is for readers and writers, listeners and talkers. Offering a blend of talks, discussions, poetry, film and theatre, the community festival brings an exciting mix of cultural events to this ancient market town. The festival returns for 2020 for its fifth year!
The festival takes place in the charming small market town of Buckingham – a hidden gem with cool restaurants and shops in ‘The Hidden Quarter’, a vibrant Market Square and home to the UK’s first independent University. Do allow time in your visit to explore Buckingham, have a meal, wander its pretty streets and peruse the enticing shops or simply relax by the river Ouse with a good book. The Festival venues are all within a 15 minute walk except for the Old Mill House, which is 2 miles outside Buckingham off the A422. See map inset.
