The beautiful market town of Chagford will host the fourth Chagword Literary Festival over the weekend 22-24 March 2019. Plus a new addition, a whole day for our younger readers, the Chagword Children’s BookFest on Saturday 9 March 2019.

The CHAGWORD team are working hard behind the scenes and we can already promise a thrilling weekend. Expect familiar faces from the world of television, well known voices from the radio, much-loved award-winning novelists, amusing poetry, thought provoking ideas, photographic wonders – and much more.
