Take part in the Huddersfield Literature Festival/Woven Book Trail
– and win book tokens or a fabulous book & food hamper!
Many of us have been escaping into a good book during lockdown – and now you can bring your favourite fictional characters to life by taking part in the Huddersfield Literature Festival (HLF) Book Trail, in partnership with Woven Festival.
Community groups across Huddersfield are invited to run Book Trails in their local area, using repurposed fabrics and other recycled materials to recreate a favourite character or scene from a book – children’s or adult.
These are to be displayed in front windows or gardens (not public spaces) to form local trails, from Sunday 28 March to Monday 5 April (Easter Monday).
Each group will choose a winner from those taking part to receive a £20 book token. The Festival committee will then choose an overall winner to receive a luxury book and food hamper.

Online, outdoors and indoors
The Festival will return on 18-28 March 20201, with an exciting programme of online events and a spectacular Lantern Installation in the courtyard of the Lawrence Batley Theatre, which will be lit up from the anniversary of the first lockdown (23 March) to Easter Monday. Followed later in the year by a programme of indoor events once it’s safe to run them, including ‘Queen of Crime’ Val McDermid. The Festival has been awarded Safer Event organiser accreditation, ensuring that all the relevant Covid-19 safety measures will be in place for live events.
