Red Funnel Isle of Wight Literary Festival

2020 Digital Festival weekend is over – but its not really over!

This year the Red Funnel Isle of Wight Literary Festival  was “digital”.  All sessions were available on the web FREE, no sign up required. Over 1,300 people from 39 countries joined in online and many many people were generous with donations to help with costs.  Thank you. 

And many many thanks to the great speakers who agreed to take part “virtually”.  If you missed the weekend’s events you can catch up in your own time by following the WATCH NOW links to our playback page.

For a good read, and to buy the books authors talked  about visit  Blackwell’s Festival Bookshop  It’s a fantastic resource providing not only the book featured but our author’s previous works.
