Our Changing Landscape

The Suffolk coast has always inspired creativity and innovation. The Leiston Book Festival brings together inspiring writers and enthusiastic readers, for a day of exploration, debate and discovery.


Each author on our programme has written from a different perspective about our changing landscape. Together they form a day long programme that will inform, inspire and perhaps encourage you to see the world a little differently.

A Day to Inspire

Don’t miss Leiston’s first book festival on Saturday 7th September and be sure to add your name to our mailing list to be one of the first to hear about our 2025 book festival too.


The Leiston Book Festival will take place at Leiston Film Theatre, which is Suffolk’s oldest surviving cinema, which opened in 1914 and is itself well worth a visit.


The festival is managed by a group of volunteers, led by local author Robert Ashton.
