After a successful first two years, and following new investment from Woking Borough Council, the Lightbox Literary Festival is to significantly expand in size and will be renamed the Woking Literary Festival from 2019.
The festival was launched in 2017 and runs over a week every April at The Lightbox. The event already has an impressive record of attracting big names such as Alison Weir, Alastair Sooke, Tim Weaver and biographer Franny Moyle and is attracting large audiences, with over 4000 visitors during the 2018 event. The festival’s hugely successful collaboration with Write Out Loud Woking continues to bring performance poetry and the spoken word to audiences across Surrey.
We are excited to be working with Woking based Nielsen Book, Woking Borough Council and publisher and festival veteran, Scott Pack. 2019’s Festival will run from 23 April to 30 April 2019.
Profits from the festival go towards The Lightbox charity.
