“Outside of a dog, a book is a man’s best friend. Inside of a dog it’s too dark to read.” Groucho Marx
Truer words have never been spoken.
And to celebrate this fact, the London Literature Festival is gearing up to mark its 16th year of excellent prose-worshipping events.
It’s all taking place at the Southbank Centre over an eleven-day stretch of late October, which will be stuffed full of talks, recordings, performances, masterclasses, readings, and more. The line-up is so well curated that essentially everything feels like one of the highlights, but here are a choice few picks to give you an idea of what’s on offer:

To reiterate, these are but a few choice canapés in an extremely large feast of literature that you’ll be able to tuck into when the festival rolls into town later this year – providing you’ve secured tickets in advance.
NOTE: The London Literature Festival takes place from 18th-29th October 2023 at the Southbank Centre. Tickets are on sale now, and can be booked right HERE.

If you’re there over the weekend and happen to need sustenance… you should pop into the Southbank Centre Food Market.
