Ways with Words Festival at Dartington


A vibrant and joyful 10-day festival of words and ideas in South Devon

Set in the glorious Dartington Hall just outside of Totnes, South Devon, the atmosphere is invigorating. People come together in spectacular surroundings to share the pleasure and power of language and ideas.

The mission of the ways with words festival is to “promote both the written and the spoken word” and to gather people where they can share the pleasure and power of language and ideas. What is interesting is that while such genres as fiction, biography, history, art and science are the primary topics at the festival, there is also an emphasis on how to make and live more satisfying lives. 

You will have an opportunity to discuss these diverse topics with top politicians, journalists and writers who are invited to Ways With Words, to learn something new and to come up with your own ideas, arguments and conclusions.

Please note that Ways With Words festival has a separate box office and website for tickets and information www.wayswithwords.co.uk
