The University of Leeds is an official partner of the Ilkley Literature Festival, which is based in the Yorkshire spa town just 15 miles from Leeds and is the largest literary festival in the North of England. 

Through our partnership we not only support the Festival to attract leading names to the area, but we're also providing our students with unique opportunities to gain hands-on experience with a leading cultural organisation.

Writers, researchers and students from the University feature in the Festival’s programme of talks, events and activities.

If you're a student or member of staff, you will have access to ticket discount offers as part of the University's partnership with the Festival.
