Hearth 2022

Hearth 2022

5th February - 5th February 2022

Save the date: Hearth is back! Improve your writing, find out how to publish your novel, get hints and tips and find inspiration during our February micro-festival. 

Pull up a chair, gather around the hearth and indulge in a day of stimulating and entertaining conversation.

Hearth began in 2013 and is held every year on a Saturday in February. As Gladfest's younger sibling it aims to distill all the best bits of festival life - book chat, comfortable chairs, tea and cake, a good glass of wine - into a single day. With opportunities to meet, talk and create with four authors over a day of book-based events, it's one of our most popular events and regularly sells out. You can come for the full day or if time is tight, a morning or afternoon. We also reserve a few tickets for individual events for the truly time-pressed.

Please use the sidebar to the left to navigate our successful past and exciting upcoming Hearth festivals, and you can listen to a selection of recordings from our past Hearth festivals over on our SoundCloud page.
