Welcome to the Oakwood Literature Festival

We are a ‘not for profit’ organisation running a Literature Festival based in Oakwood, a district north of Derby. Our aims are to promote books and reading, and to bring authors and readers together to celebrate literature.

Each year we host a literature festival which started small and continues to grow. Like most organisations, we were hit by the pandemic and had to cancel the festival for two years running.

In 2022, we are back. We are always open to new ideas and ways of working, and with this in mind, we are introducing workshops as well as talks and panel discussions.
