 ...to Jersey Festival of Words. This five-day literary event promotes a love of the written and spoken word across our community in a variety of styles and settings, as well as welcoming internationally-renowned authors to our beautiful island.


 This year we are supported by the Jersey Community Foundation (with funds from the Channel Island Lottery proceeds) and the Government of Jersey.

Alongside our regular venues – Jersey Arts Centre, St Helier Library and Jersey Heritage sites, we are proud to announce the exciting addition of a 400-person daisy-pole marquee in Howard Davis Park as our main venue. We look forward to announcing more of our programme in the months to come, with ticket sales going live on July 1st.

The guiding principle of our festival is to celebrate the pleasure and power of words in all its forms, with something to include people of all ages and backgrounds. In addition to literary events, our festival includes performance poetry, drama, film, music and visual arts, always with words at its heart.
