Event Updates: 26 Wordstock Returns! Save the date

Last year’s sell-out Wordstock saw a new half-day format for 26’s annual celebration of words as we joined forces with the Bloomsbury Festival to celebrate their 2023 theme of Grow. This year, we are delighted to be returning to Conway Hall Library on Saturday 19 October, with the same host (Neil Baker), a new set of speakers, and a new theme: human.kind.

This isn’t a call out in quite the same way as this time last year – we have a host, we have our key slots filled (by this year’s various projects and 26’s collaboration with Jacob Sam-La Rose’s Barbican Young Poets), and we don’t have much space left in the afternoon! But until we announce the schedule for the afternoon, consider it a little taster, and a save-the-date. Wordstock is the highlight of 26’s live event calendar, and with tickets only £15, it’s certainly not a date to miss.
