Nestling in Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, BeaconLit is in its eighth year. Run and staffed entirely by volunteers, its two main aims are: to nurture reading and writing in and around the Beacon Villages; and to support the Beacon Villages Community Library.
The festival has been praised by audiences and participants alike for combining a high quality event with a unique friendly, intimate 'villagey' atmosphere and a warm welcome. Our hallmark is an eclectic programme of literary events with something for everyone, from bestsellers to the hottest new debut authors, and with a range of formats.
If you love books, you're bound to love BeaconLit!
