The Tamar Valley Writers Festival is for readers, writers, friends, family and tourists wishing to participate in local activities and be part of a community event. The Festival program is designed to attract people with a range of interests. There are so many topics to learn more about including crime fiction, young adult literature and culture, social issues, history, comedy, permaculture, sustainability, and language.
Of course the spring sun will shine upon our Festival! The good news is, while we hold al fresco events, much of the Festival program is presented within the comfortable, warm surrounds of the Hotel Grand Chancellor and Pilgrim Church, Launceston. We cannot imagine any reason why the Festival would be cancelled due to bad weather.
We would recommend, however, dressing for cool conditions. Bring a coat, scarf, beanie, and gloves.
