London Literature Festival 2023

10:00am – 10:00pm

Autumn is the perfect season to hunker down with a good book and if you need inspiration for your reading list, there’s no better place to be than the Southbank Centre. Now in its 15th year, London Literature Festival brings international authors, poets and speakers together for a gathering of word nerds and book-lovers over 11 days at the riverside venue.

This year’s line up of talks, readings, workshops and poetry includes the first public event with the newly-crowned 2022 Booker Prize winner plus writers including Malorie Blackman, Graham Norton, Karl Ove Knausgård and Nick Cave. The 2022 Edward W Said London lecture will be delivered by the winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature, Abdulrazak Gurnah.

You can buy tickets for individual events but here’s a top Cheapo tip – grab a multi-buy ticket and you’ll get a 25% discount when you book three or more events. Just be sure to check your event is marked ‘Multi-buy’ on the programme.

Organisers may cancel events, alter schedules, or change admission requirements without notice. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
