Everybody’s Reading 2018

29th September – 7th October 2018

The Everybody’s Reading Festival will be returning to the city of Leicester this Autumn. We’ve now got a complete programme of events and soon you’ll be able to browse the brand new brochure right here and in various libraries, cafes and other venues around Leicester.

If you missed out on applying for a community grant you can still get involved through volunteering – We’re now recruiting for 2018 and we’d love to hear from you (See our ‘Volunteers’ page for more info!) Or simply coming along to one of the many amazing events we’ll be bringing your way.

Below you can find some images from the 2017 festival…


Follow us on Facebook and Twitter for news as it happens, leading up to and throughout the festival we’ll be keeping you up to date with pictures galore on our Instagram account… @EverybodysReading_Leicester

The Festival – What’s it all about?

Everybody’s Reading is a festival of all things reading, taking place across Leicester city in schools, libraries and venues, ranging from bars, cafes, pubs, and coffee shops.

Everybody’s Reading is dedicated to encouraging every person in Leicester to hear spoken word artists, poets, authors and community writers in their local community venues and offers funding to help make this happen. With a large variety of genres catered to, it is guaranteed there is something for everyone to enjoy from anywhere in the city


tcA HUGE thank you to all the 2017 volunteers, we can’t wait to do it all over again next year when we will be needing another gang of festival recruits. If you are interested in getting work experience, would like to try something new, or would just like to volunteer your time and meet new people for 2018, we will have lots of volunteering opportunities again – So check back next year!
