To celebrate, 20 golden tickets have been hidden in bookshops, cafes and libraries across the Midlands. Each ticket offers the finder two free entry passes to one of the festival’s events and one special ticket offers the winner a full festival pass.
Details on how to claim your event passes are given on the golden tickets.
The towns taking part are Kidderminster, Shrewsbury, Lichfield, Stafford, Stoke on Trent, Stratford-Upon-Avon, Hereford, Solihull, Sutton, Walsall, Wolverhampton, Coventry, Warwick, Worcester, Bromsgrove and, of course, Birmingham.
Jonathan Davidson, Chief Executive of Writing West Midlands and festival programmer, said:
“I’m thrilled to present the Spring Edition of the Birmingham Literature Festival. It’s a significant year for us, celebrating twenty years of sharing great writing with this great city.
“The finders of the golden tickets will be welcomed to one of our fantastic events. To win, simply be the first to find one hidden in the region’s bookshops, cafes and libraries. I wish you the best of luck.”
Tickets for all events are now on sale.
As well as tickets for individual events, Birmingham Literature Festival also offers a Festival Pass, which allows regular attendees the chance to attend the ten main events for just £50.
