The Buckingham Literary Festival is for readers and writers, listeners and talkers. Offering a blend of talks, discussions, poetry, film and theatre our community festival brings an exciting mix of cultural events to this ancient market town.

The Buckingham Literary Festival is a not-for-profit organisation, run by volunteers and responsible for generating sufficient funds to cover all costs. We are hugely grateful for the generous support of our Patrons and Benefactors who contribute both in enthusiasm and funding to help make the Festival fly.
