Festival HQ

Dalton LitFest Festival HQ and Information Centre will be in Dalton Community Centre (known locally as the Drill Hall)

Pop in to find out more about the events that are part of the Festival, meet up with friends and have a brew and one of Dorothy’s famous cakes, join in the various writing games we have on offer or just have a bit of quiet time reading one of the books you can buy from the book stalls.

The stalls will be selling books from all the Festival authors, some of whom might well pop up to sign copies and chat.

If you’ve not been to Dalton before you will have the chance to meet the oldest book club in the world, ask our volunteers to help you get around and get all manner of inside information about the town.

So we look forward to seeing you at our HQ and hearing your thoughts on Dalton LitFest 2017, and ideas and suggestions for 2018.


Dalton Community Centre is wheelchair accessible.

There is disabled parking near venues but if you need assistance phone Shaun on 07743 822114 to arrange a volunteer to meet you to help out.
