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!
You can buy tickets by clicking on the Buy Tickets above or you will find a Buy Now link after each event, or by visiting the Ropetackle Centre box office on Little High Street, Shoreham by Sea.
