Newham Word Festival

Newham Council is committed to ensuring all our residents have access to literature - whether it’s written, spoken, performed or exhibited. That is why we are working with Stratford’s Discover Children’s Story Centre to offer a two-week programme of free events designed to show residents the beauty of the written and spoken word. 

This year’s Newham Word Festival will run from 1 to 14 June 2020 and will bring together local and international artists, writers, performers, journalists and poets for a vast variety of events that will be held at venues across the borough, including libraries, community centres and schools.
​More information about the Newham Word Festival will be available nearer the time.
