Memories from this year's Festival...
...to Jersey Festival of Words. This 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.
We are grateful to main Festival corporate sponsor HIGHVERN, with whom we are delighted to enjoy a second year.
As with last year we are also 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 will be staging events in the newly-renovated Freedom Centre in Bath Street for the first time in the Festival's history.
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.
