Chagword Literary Festival
The Dartmoor town of Chagford hosts an annual literary festival in March each year - which is already famous for its music and film festivals. 2019 sees the fourth annual festival, launching on the evening of Friday 22, then running all day Saturday 23 and Sunday 24 March. This year the festival is also hosting a Children’s Bookfest on Saturday 9 March.
Chagword 2019 aims to establish Chagford as a focus of literary excellence by attracting high quality speakers, and providing new opportunities for local people to experience literature in direct, accessible and dynamic ways.
