Get Involved

Would you like to perform or put on an event?

If you want to take part in the festival as a performer, or to put on an event and entertain the good people of Shepton and wider Somerset? Then we want to hear from you.

The festival is open to any performer, in the whole world and beyond, pandemic restrictions allowing of course. Of course, this is a literary event to celebrate words but that takes many forms and we’re open to your proposals.

Please email us at with details of what you could bring and let’s talk.

It’s an usual year as far as events and festivals coming back so our deadline for taking part will remain as flexible as possible, but make contact now if your thinking about it, and before the 10th June 2021, would be much appreciated.

Online festival events – the world has changed and with it how some events can be delivered. We recognise that some people might want or need to access events without leaving their house or they can’t travel to us this year, as a performer or audience. So if you were looking to present an event digitally, let’s talk.

All events will be publicised it in our full programme of events, which will be available in both print and online nearer to the event and publicised through our social media channels.
