Since 2010, Stoke Newington Literary Festival has been celebrating the area’s radical and literary history that’s become one of the most eclectic, diverse and, frankly, fun in the literary calendar.
Stoke Newington has been one of the most fascinating London ‘villages’ throughout history. From the non-conformists who gathered around Newington Green in the 17th century to the diverse community that exists today, it’s long been a melting pot of new ideas, artistic endeavour and off-centre thinking and our programming is directly inspired by the mavericks and rabble-rousers who were born, lived or worked here – Mary Wollstonecraft, Reverend Richard Price, Edgar Allan Poe, Daniel Defoe, John Berger, Marc Bolan, Sid Vicious & many more – who helped shape the world we know.
There’s something for everyone at Stoke Newington’s small but perfectly-formed literature festival.
FRI 7TH – SUN 9TH JUNE, 2019
At various locations across Stoke Newington.
