2020 Festival goes virtual

This year’s Sevenoaks Literature Festival is going ahead – as a ‘virtual’ event in late September and October.

Although the 2020 programme was almost fully complete by February, the Covid-19 crisis has led to a significant re-think.

So, we have reduced the number of events and are teaching ourselves how to run online events.

Further details, and the final line-up, will be confirmed in coming weeks, but for now we can confirm the following provisional dates:

Friday 25 or Saturday 26 September

Monday 28 September

Wednesday 30 September

Thursday 01 October

Friday 02 October

Sunday 04 October

We will be looking to use a mixture of Zoom webinars, films published via this website and Q&A sessions via Facebook.

Some events will be live; others recorded. Most, if not all, will have the possibility of Qs and As.

All events will be free but the Festival Committee would very much welcome donations. We will be incorporating the means to do so via the Festival website within the next few weeks.

In the meantime, please do join our mailing list to receive regular news of authors and events as they are confirmed.

And if you have any questions, please contact us via our social media channels.
