Headingley Lit Fest was created in early 2008 and operates under the wing of Headingley Network, a community organisation which works to improve the environment and facilities for the local community.
The LitFest is run by a group of people who are local to Headingley and their idea is that they develop a literature festival that draws on the strengths of the local community to entertain, enlighten and delight.
The LitFest takes place in March each year but the organisers also run some supplementary events ‘Between the Lines’ through the year.
