Todmorden Book Festival has now released its online programme including The Yorkshire Shepherdess, Amanda Owen and environmental campaigner Jonathan Porritt.  Register FREE for all online events.


The Todmorden Festival team has created an exciting digital programme that includes in-depth interviews with the Yorkshire Shepherdess Amanda Owen and environmentalist Jonathon Porritt, and an exclusive event with the award-winning poet and Patron of Todmorden Book Festival Andrew McMillan reading from his new collection, due to be released in May 2021. You can register to take part in our popular Open Mic event hosted by Wednesday Writers, and we are delighted to bring you our first ever fringe event A Play and a Pint.
