The next Swindon Spring Festival – of Literature and the Arts is scheduled to take place 3rd – 15th May 2021.


We hope it will be a live event in open spaces and public venues but if not, it will be a blend of outdoor live events, live events online, and recorded events.

But one thing’s for sure.


The next Swindon Spring Festival will have all its usual and surprise ingredients: terrific authors and talks; delightful discussions; great performers and performances; and wonderful workshops.


And, at this point, we welcome suggestions and applications from authors, publishers, and performers.


We look forward to reappearing and reconnecting with you all in May 2021!


Meanwhile, we hope that all is well where you are and extend greetings and best thoughts to you, to yours, and to Swindon Spring Festival followers everywhere.


There will be another day.  

If you would like to be kept in touch with any further developments and plans for2021,
