This festival ran every October from 2008 to 2013.  The decision was taken in 2014 not to continue the Alton Word Fest, but we have retained this website for the time being.   The idea of the festival was to celebrate the written and spoken word in all its forms, including books, drama, music and art.

You can explore the archive, including the PDF programmes of past events, and you can also see the photographs on the dedicated Facebook page:


You may be interested to note that Alton Chamber of Commerce & Industry also run the Jane Austen Regency Week.  This also started in 2008 and celebrates Alton and Chawton’s connection with Jane Austen and the Regency period.
