Guernsey Literary Festival 2023

This year’s Guernsey Literary Festival will welcome several top authors and broadcasters including journalist David Dimbleby, lexicographer Susie Dent, TV and radio presenter Dan Walker, and Children’s Laureate Joseph Coelho.

More than 65 events will take place during the festival’s two-week run from 2-14 May, with international speakers and writers, as well as local authors, set to offer insight and insider information on their work.  

In a press release, the festival’s director Clare Allen, said she is “delighted” with the line-up of guests the event has been able to attract. 

She added: “Local audiences will be able to listen to, and question, well-known names on a wide spectrum of subjects based on the speakers’ books. 

“Our programme covers media and news, health, poetry and the novel, the environment, business and economics, history, sport, music, and social issues. I’m especially happy with our education programme, which takes writers into schools, and the community programme, which has expanded this year.”

The Guernsey Literary Festival is a not-for-profit event planned, organised, and run by a team of volunteers.

Since its inception the festival has established itself as one of the biggest annual arts events in the Channel Islands. It takes place over two weeks in May and attracts a diverse selection of presenters and writers.

A series of workshops, tea parties, and themed events aimed at children is also held parallel to the festival.
