Event Description

The first Crouch End Literary Festival.

February 23rd-25th, 2024.

A celebration of local writers, interviews, workshops, talks and performances around the written word.


Over 50 writers.

Over 20 events.

8 venues: hub is Hornsey Library.

Full Festival program here: www.CrouchEndFestival.org 

This year sees the first ever Crouch End Literary Festival, featuring Linda Plant, Peter Bradshaw (author and Guardian film critic), Mat Baynton (comedian, actor writer, Horrible Histories and Ghosts), Catherine West MP, Robert Peston, Steve Richards, Alan Wolfson, Dave Cohen, Rohan Candappa and a long list of local writers of all kinds – novelists, factual, script writers, comedy writers, poets, etc... From young and new to established names. (List coming soon - watch this space!)

Listen. Learn. Be inspired!

Family friendly - kids welcome - they may be inspired.

Most events are free.

Run by the Crouch End Festival team, in association with Dave Cohen, Hornsey Library, Friends of Hornsey Library, Waterstones Crouch End, All Good Bookshop, and teh intimate Space,  it should be quite an event. And certainly not like most traditional literary festivals.

Spread over 3 days the hub will be in the Hornsey Library but we are also running talks, workshops and novel events across the N8 area in a variety of venues including: Waterstones / Holy Innocents / The Intimates Space (St Mary’s Tower) / Art House / The Green / Stapleton / All Good Bookshop / + various pop-up venues.

A novel favourite with the summer festival, we have Poets in the Phone Box featuring Alan Wolfson and others. Plus the Great Letter Hunt - can you find the 26 letters around Crouch End?

Plus recitals and performances in coffee shops and pop-up performance spaces.

The Crouch End Players will be performing NO QUARTER by local legend Barry Bermange, across all three nights of the festival at the Intimate Space (St Mary’s Tower) in Hornsey Village.

Fri 23, 7:30 - WURDS+MUSIC is an üF-Beat special - a night of improvised music & spoken word in the Holy Eye (Holy Innocents) featuring top writers and musicians.

We have workshops on self-publishing, and comedy writing. A talk on Dyslexic writers featuring Sam Rapp the ‘Dyslexic Poet’ and Dr Chris Arnold, dyslexic and founder of Dyversity Lab. (Did you know Agatha Christie, Yeats, Fitzgerald and Hans Christian Andersen were dyslexic?).

We hope that there is something for everyone, whatever your taste. This isn't your ordinary literary festival, it's  more fun. more creative and a little more dynamic.
