About & Press

Welcome to this year’s Balham Literary Festival. We’re looking forward to being back in Balham for the fourth year with a truly exciting line-up.

The focus of the Festival is Balham and South London – from fictional depictions of the area to speakers who have strong links to this part of the capital, we are proud to be able to celebrate this side of the Thames.

As well as celebrating the local, we’ve also got events that consider today’s world through broader themes, from philosophy and climate change, to politics and the health care system – we hope there is something in the programme that catches your eye.

We look forward to seeing you there.
