Fowey Festival

About

Taking place in various locations in Fowey, Cornwall’s premier literary festival will once again feature a diverse range of authors, speakers, musicians, and artists. 

Organised by the du Maurier Festival Society, it is staged in the beautiful riverside town of Fowey, which was home to Daphne du Maurier and Sir Arthur Quiller-Couch and also asociated with Wind in the Willows author Kenneth Grahame. 

A highlight of the regional calendar and one of the most significant festivals in the UK, promises an equally impressive line-up of literary and musical talent at a wide range of choice locations in and around one of Cornwall’s most scenic riverside settings.  

It is a must do event with something for everyone, not just book lovers. Come and enjoy, have fun and laugh together. Be inspired! Keep up to date with developments and look out for the 2019 programme at  www.foweyfestival.com
