An immersive, educative and inspirational experience

A visit to Wealden Literary Festival is an immersive, educative and inspirational experience, something that will stay with you for a lifetime. There’s a unique magic about Boldshaves.

It is a thrill to see Wealden Literary Festival taking root and flourishing. With its emphasis on the natural world, its commitment to children and to community, and its vision of getting people outdoors and hands-on with nature, as well as reading and talking about it, it strikes me as a hugely hopeful and valuable new event. Long may it grow!

The Wealden Festival is a beautiful experience: convivial, generous, and profoundly hospitable to ideas and words and all who love them.
