Yeovil Literary Festival 2021
The 2021 festival runs from Thursday 28 October to Wednesday 3 November, with over 50 events taking place across multiple venues.
Following the scaled-back festival last year as a result of the coronavirus pandemic and subsequent national lockdowns and restrictions, The Octagon Theatre and Westlands Entertainment Venue has once again joined forces for Yeovil Literary Festival with Waterstones, Yeovil, the Yeovil Community Arts Association and Somerset Libraries to bring you names that will inspire and leave you wanting to hear more.
This year’s line-up boasts some exceptional names, including royalty joining us in the form of Sarah, Duchess Of York discussing her first novel for adults. We also welcome comedy-royalty, with Michael McIntyre taking to the stage at a post-festival event to talk about the highs and lows of his rise to the top and desperate attempts to stay there.
Alongside royalty, well-known literary figures, comedians and emerging writers will be providing fascinating insights and extracts from their current books and bringing inspiration to South Somerset including Dr Richard Shepherd, a forensic pathologist, award winning author Rob Biddulph, actress Evanna Lynch, charity campaigner and TV presenter Katie Piper, author Clare Mackintosh, national treasure and actress Miriam Margolyes, comedian and author David Baddiel, ITV's Dr Hilary Jones, comedian, actor and writer Ben Miller, author Lucy Worsley and many more incredible talents too.
