Deptford Literature Festival is back for 2023…Save the Date!


The Deptford Literature Festival is coming back to Deptford on Saturday 18 March 2023! The Festival celebrates the diversity and creativity of Deptford and Lewisham through words, stories and performance, with the local community and accessibility at its heart. The theme for the 2023 Festival is climate, nature and food, with many events taking the theme as inspiration.

Deptford Literature Festival is aimed at local audiences, and will feature literature’s diverse rising stars in talks, workshops, performances and events for adults, children & families. For those not able to attend the events in person, there will be opportunities to take part at home.

We have three live opportunities for local writers and organisations to apply to take part:


The full programme and ticket bookings will be open in early February 2023.

Deptford Literature Festival is funded by Arts Council England.
