Blackpool’s Arts and Libraries Festival of Words


2017 will be Wordpool’s 11th year and we have been supported by the Arts Lottery through Arts Council England to help us extend and develop our festival programme. Our new Festival of Written Word will focus on ways to introduce new writing and encouraging new readers. We’re looking forward to working with both well-known and emerging authors.

The Festival is managed by Blackpool Council’s Arts and Library Services.

Wordpool development and delivery is overseen by the Wordpool Steering Group, which includes representatives from strategic partners, Wordpool volunteers and delivery partners; community organisations, schools and colleges and arts and library staff.
