Literary Festival

Welcome to the inaugural Hanford Literary Festival - a week long celebration of the written word for both children and adults. 

Reading is a central part of life at Hanford with time set aside during the day especially for girls to settle down with a good, scary, exciting or even practical book. So it only seems natural that we should celebrate our love of books and words with a literary festival.

We have put together a programme with something for everyone: talks by world famous authors, followed by innovative workshops designed to access that one story we all have to tell.

As part of the week we are opening up our evening and closing talks to the public. Free tickets can be obtained via our website by following the link to ‘The Literary Festival’. There will be light refreshments available at all public talks.

We look forward to welcoming you to Hanford,

Carrie Lewis, Head of English
