Friends Group Launched

Friends Group Launched

The Exeter Literary Festival is introducing a Friends Group, allowing audiences a way to support the Festival which will return with a full programme for readers and writers alike in November 2021.

The Exeter Literary Festival promotes writing and literature within Exeter and the surrounding area. As a Friend of ExeLitFest, benefits include an advance copy of the programme, and priority booking for tickets to see the guest speakers. Friends will also be invited to a private reception as a part of the Festival weekend.

‘It is with mixed emotion that we launch our Friends Group on the weekend the 2020 Festival was due to take place,’ said Festival Director, Dr Kate McCormick. ‘We want to build on the success of the first two years and remind both writers and readers we are still here.’

‘Cancelling the Festival this year was a difficult decision, but we were not alone, and it only makes us want to return next year with renewed vigour. By launching our Friends Group, we are showing our commitment to our audiences.’

Annual membership will cost £20 for an individual or £35 for a couple. Details can be found here or by email.

Details of the first guests appearing at the 2021 Festival will be announced early in the New Year.
