19 September to 12 October 2014

Welcome to Shoreham Wordfest 2014. We are firm believers that words have the power to connect us to ideas, to the past, and to one another. Wordfest is a celebration of words: written, spoken, sung. There are events for readers, writers, listeners, ramblers, music-lovers, children, and enthusiasts of all sorts. We hope you'll browse our programme and find your way to celebrate words with us this autumn!
