Alderney Literary Festival

The Alderney Literary Festival is the Channel Island's boutique festival of historical literature, where people who enjoy reading and writing about the past come together 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 fiction and non-fiction. In 2017, we inaugurated a special speaker slot - the Festival's Debut Novelist - inviting a new author who we believe is one to watch for the future.

In this Festival, history is explored through biographies, thrillers and crime stories, the fantastical and the supernatural, romance, adventure, warfare and political analysis. Our guest authors bring fresh insights into old events, reinterpret them in the light of new evidence, and make history relevant to the present time.
