The Alderney Literary Festival is the Channel Island’s boutique history festival, where people who enjoy reading and writing about the past come together to talk books and have a great weekend.

The Festival takes place over a long weekend every March in the historic Island Hall, Alderney’s seat of government, built in 1763. We keep audiences small to create an intimate and friendly feel to this ‘salon’ style gathering of historians, biographers, novelists, and fans of historical literature.

In the Festival, history is explored through factual and fiction writing: biographies, thrillers and crime stories, the fantastical and the supernatural, romance, adventure, warfare and political analysis, and even poetry. We ask our guest authors to throw new light on old events and reinterpret them anew to make history relevant in the present time.

“So jealous of everyone at Alderney Lit Fest this weekend. Last year was one of the best times of my life. One of the best book festivals in the WORLD!!!! If you missed this year, plan to go to the next. I kid you not. Do it.”
