We’re sorry we couldn’t see you this year but we’re delighted that all the wonderful performers booked for 2020 have promised to join us next August for an even bigger and better summer shindig. So let us entertain you - see you in 2021!

The South West has a strong literary tradition and love of words and during the day The Hey'Tor Stage is home to authors, poets, writers and talkers being interviewed, reading from their works, discussing and debating. As we say in Devon, expect plenty yappin’ and yakkin’!
