Warwick - a cultural centre with two International Festivals

For a town of 27,000 inhabitants, Warwick has an unrivalled artistic life.  It's superb architectural heritage and its new buildings - The Dream Factory and The Bridge House Theatre - give a unique flavour to events going on throughout the year.

Warwick Words
Warwick will be bursting with writers, poets, illustrators, storytellers and performance poets from around the country. They will be visiting the historic buildings and venues throughout the town to perform their work.

This is our sixth literary festival and we can promise you an exciting selection of events from over 50 writers and poets including, Roy Hattersley, Anne Diamond, Charles Spencer, Will Hutton, Sophie Hannah, Nigel Rees, Pauline Prior-Pitt, Phil Beadle and Michael Wood.

There are many ways to enjoy Warwick Words, with workshops, afternoon teas, free events, performances, walks and talks around the town. Booking is now open, so call 01926 776438 now to book your tickets!

Please join us in celebrating this year’s festival – we look forward to seeing you. If you love words you will love Warwick Words.


Warwick Folk Festival
The Warwick Folk Festival, the annual programmes at The Dream Factory and Bridge House Theatre, plus a number of other active arts promoters besides Warwick Music Live, make Warwick a top cultural centre.

Warwick Racecourse is one of the leading flat and steeple chasing courses and has a regular programme of 25 meetings throughout the year.  The central grandstand incorporates the first stand built in 1809, amongst the oldest surviving in the country.
