After the last two years on-line, the Festival will be live once more in the Community Centre. To celebrate this return to normal life we have chosen a Feelgood theme this year, focussing on both mental and physical wellbeing. As before most events are FREE to all and we have a great line-up of award-winning poets, writers, scientists, artists and musicians to entertain you. There will be poetry for the soul, uplifting tales, scientific enquiry, and beautiful music to enjoy as well as a wonderful art exhibition in a new gallery space.
There will be a chance to enjoy the outdoors with walks, rambles and cycle rides and children’s activities too. View full programme details here.
It promises to be a stimulating and entertaining week! We look forward to seeing you in October.
The Festival is run by a small group of volunteers. In order to offer a programme of free events we rely on donations. We are grateful for the support of the following organisations: Literature Wales, Knighton Town Council, KINDA, Knighton Rotary Club, Friends of Knighton Library and the Knighton Community Centre.
