Past Festivals

The Mere Literary Festival was founded in 1997. From its inception, the festival has been ably organised by Adrienne Howell, and is staffed entirely by volunteers. The festival uses the talents of a combination of local writers and performers, and those from the international stage, to put on a variety of talks, workshops and shows.
