Welcome to

Evesham Festival of Words

A celebration of words in all their forms, written, spoken, sung, with something for all the family. Launched in 2016, the first year of the Festival was fun, frantic and festive. 2017  has been bigger and better, with a fabulous programme within the main Festival period, and fringe events before and after.   And we are now starting to plan for 2018 – watch this space!
