About The Festival in a Factory

The Festival in a Factory returns to the Emma Bridgewater Factory on Thursday 7th, Friday 8th and Saturday 9th June 2018 featuring a diverse programme of authors, workshops and performers discussing the creative process and their latest releases, giving festival goers the opportunity to debate with and meet some of the country’s leading writers.

“I’m delighted that the Stoke Literary Festival is now an established highlight of the city and region’s cultural calendar. What began as a quick discussion with Tristram Hunt has turned into something really special indeed.”
