July 8th – July 11th
The Penzance Literary Festival is a festival for everyone who enjoys words – the written word, the spoken word, the recited word and the sung word too.
Penzance Literary Festival began life in 2010 as a minor gathering on the fringes of a craft fair, but has expanded rapidly into a significant and diverse celebration of books, reading and writing, with music, theatre and performance poetry added to the mix. While it quickly began to attract big-name authors, the organisers made a decision at an early stage that the growing festival would always remain rooted in the local community.
The four-day festival, which will run in the Cornish seaside town, is now in its sixth year, having grown to become a major event in the West Country literary calendar.
The theme for the 2015 Penzance Literary Festival is “Sparks”.
Mount Haven provide an ideal base for the the festival, there are a number of local buses that pick up right outside the hotel. If you require more information about our room rates during this period please do not hesitate to contact a memeber of our staff and we will be more than happy to help.
