The Fowey Festival of Arts and Literature -what's it all about?
This eclectic festival of literature, music and performance has an exciting programme of talks, exhibitions, workshops, guided walks, river cruises and community activities attracting the great and the good from the world of literature, music and entertainment. To top it all it takes place in Fowey, an area of outstanding natural beauty.

How can you take part?
The festival is an opportunity for visitors to explore the historic town and the stunning scenery that surrounds it and why the area has been a rich source of material for so many writers. Join the intimate gatherings when novelists bring their works to life, find out more about popular TV programmes with the people who make them, hear politicians talk about life at Westminster, enjoy famous comedians as they punctuate the festival with lots of laughter and there's plenty of music to keep you entertained, too.

A bit about Fowey
Set in an area of outstanding natural beauty, the town hangs off the west side of the Fowey estuary. As you walk the ever narrowing streets of the old town where medieval and Georgian buildings cast shadows over each other, a vibrant maritime history comes to life. If you're a foodie then Fowey is home to many bistros, cafes and restaurants where you'll find menus offering the best in local produce.
