Our 2020 Southam Book Festival plans have been put on hold because of the Covid-19 pandemic.   We may have to modify plans quite considerably. Before the end of July the planning group will have made final decisions about the shape the 2020 Festival will take.  We will keep you posted.

Meanwhile the Flash Fiction competition goes ahead and is now open for entries.  For safety reasons,  the competition will be run entirely on line this year. Many  thanks to our local judging and admin team.


Thank you for supporting the festivals of 2018 and 2019.

PRAISE FOR 2018 & 2019:

About time Southam got a book festival - and a fantastic one, at that!

The festival had such a great buzz. And so many books and authors to choose from!


Hay Festival, be warned, you have a new rival!
