Jersey Festival of Words

Are you a reader, a bookworm or a bibliophile? If so, the Jersey Federation of WIs has the perfect short break for you.

From 26th-30th September 2019, Jersey will be holding its fourth Festival of Words book festival. The programme is being put together at the moment but authors who have appeared at our previous festivals include Carol Ann Duffy, Victoria Hislop, Alison Weir, Michael Morpurgo, Louis de Bernieres, Simon Scarrow, Jeremy Paxman, Richard Dawkins, Dame Jenni Murray, Alexander Mc Call Smith and Joanna Trollope.

It is anticipated this high standard will be maintained if not exceeded at the 2019 Festival.

Also include in the programme are visits to places of interest. You will be based in St Helier at the well appointed Hampshire Hotel and we will be walking between venues. The cost will be dependent on whether single or sharing and is on a b&b basis (this does not include travel to Jersey). The price will include on event on Thursday and Friday evenings and two each on Saturday and Sunday. There will be of course numerous other choices to enjoy in your free time. For those of you who have been on or heard of our WI Liberation Week holiday will know that you have the warmth, care and attention of the WI at all times.
