YA Fest is a young adult book festival held at Chadwell Heath Community Centre, a registered charity, home to Robert Jeyes Library. We here at CHCC love YA literature and want to spread that love by holding a festival. It promises to be lots of fun!
Festival enthusiast Ann Landmann and Noel Chidwick, were having a cup of tea and lamenting the lack of genre authors in book festivals programmes. So why not set up our own book festival?, they asked each other.
Established in 1949, The Cheltenham Literature Festival is one of oldest literary events in the world – and with a feast of superstar speakers and the chance to meet your favourite authors and characters – it’s certainly the most fun!
