We were too far down the line to organise a tribute to STP last year, but were keen to keep his name and work alive. ‘The Turtle Moves’ is the call of Discworld fans across the Roundworld!
The background to our playwriting workshop is all too relevant to what’s happening all over the world, with the suffering of refugees bringing it home to us every day.
We are excited to announce that festival creative partner Sam Hall’s new full-length play, MY MIND IS FREE, comes to the Rochester Literature Festival on Sunday 11 October as part of a 20-venue tour of London and the Southeast, supported by Arts Council England.

We have decided that the site specific theatre event was not quite ready to run on the 4th October and have decided to postpone it.
In its place we will be running a Creative Retreat in the Bishop’s House and would like to invite writers, poets, artists and other creatives to join us. Bishopscourt is a wonderfully inspiring place offering all sorts of spaces to write, draw and collaborate. (No messy work though!)
A mad mix of the unusual and quirky is in order for the finale for this year’s festival.
It was Lady Caroline Lamb who gave Byron the lasting epitaph of Mad, Bad & Dangerous to Know, and we know our line up for this final event will not disappoint.
