Welcome to Festival of Words 2021.

Literature comes to life in New Plymouth this winter with a fabulous four day programme that will entertain, inspire and educate.

From Thursday 29 July to Sunday 1 August we’re bringing you performances and conversations with some of Aotearoa’s biggest names in the literary arts.

Our Festival line-up will be announced here on our website on 27 May.
We will have a mix of paid ticketed, free ticketed, and open (no bookings required) events.
Bookings for paid ticketed and free ticketed events can be made on our website.
