Main Programme 10 March to 7 April 2014

Inspired by our research work on the World War 1 hospital at Beckett Park the theme for Headingley LitFest this year is Surviving. During our research we discovered some extraordinary human stories and this LitFest pays tribute not only to them but also to others who are or have been surviving.

We also realised that people will express themselves creatively in the most adverse of circumstances— some are driven to produce their best work— and so we asked our artists and partners to express what the theme means to them. They have responded with a great array of events including their own original work, interpretations of existing work, workshops, talks, readings, drama, films, walks, childrens’ events and scarecrows.

Our thanks must go to the people and businesses of Headingley who are involved in so many of the events: they host events (some in their own homes) and they are reading, acting, performing and playing musical instruments too!

We also welcome once again visiting artists such as: Gillian Clarke and John Wedgwood Clarke; Emily Mayhew; and Aritha van Herk (all the way from Canada).
