Sir Patrick Stewart OBE, Festival Patron
"Literature broadens the mind and it’s really important to have people coming to Huddersfield to stimulate new ideas and debate. Also, to help people hone their own skills - as poets, as novelists, as scriptwriters - so that they can then become the next generation of writers that are affecting Yorkshire, the country, the UK and the world. The literature festival is a sweet reminder to people of what is theirs – of what they have a right to.”
Lemn Sissay MBE, Festival Patron
