Welcome to the Frinton Literary Festival.


We have been thrilled for over two decades to bring to some of the very best writers to Frinton-on-Sea’s unique seaside setting to celebrate books, reading and great writing. Today it is among Frinton’s longest-standing fixtures in our cultural calendar, attracting audiences from not only the town and local areas but beyond to hear and meet best-selling authors and writers who share our interests.


Our season launches with our ever-popular springtime fundraising quiz, but the main focus of our activities is traditionally a long weekend in late October hosting a series of popular author events ranging from crime to history, biography and memoir to travel and nature, poetry to literary fiction, as well as specialisms such as antiques or food and drink. We also host an annual creative writing competition and workshops and have presented a programme of speakers and workshops for schools.


We look forward to seeing you this year, connecting more authors and readers by the sea.
