Ilkley Literature Festival

When is it? From Friday 30 September 2016 until Sunday 16 October 2016.

Where is it? Ilkley Town Centre, Ilkley, West Yorkshire, LS29 9DT England

Head to Ilkley for a lively debate with the likes of Jeremy Paxman and Melvyn Bragg, or to get up close and personal with a literary legend like Louis de Bernières or Margaret Drabble.

This prestigious 17-day festival draws a glittering array of names every year, and there are over 200 reasonably priced events to choose from, including readings, workshops and discussions with authors, poets and journalists; literary walks; and comedy performances. The programme also features masterclasses for both novice and experienced writers, on themes such as investigative journalism or fiction writing.

Children aged 4-12 will find a whole weekend dedicated to fun kids' activities, including puppet shows, theatre workshops, drawing and storytelling sessions, and opportunities to meet their favourite writers and illustrators.

There's even a lively - and entirely free - fringe programme, with standup comedy, readings, live music and cabaret. Watch out for unexpected extras such as silly hats and cinnamon biscuits!
