Authors. Ideas. Experiences.


A City of Stories. A festival of ideas.

We're going live … join us

Welcome to UEA Live

Previously known as the UEA Literary Festival, UEA Live has been welcoming the world’s finest writers and thinkers to Norwich since 1991. This autumn, we will celebrate 30 years of the University’s flagship festival.

A message from UEA Live Co-Director, KR Moorhead:

“We are incredibly excited to welcome back an in-real-life audience to UEA in a safe and managed way. During times of uncertainty, we often look to writing and stories to help us make sense of who we are and where we are going. Now in its 30th year, UEA Live is more committed than ever to bringing new and varied voices to our audience, in an effort to critically and creatively explore what writing is and what it can do in the world. We hope you’ll be as excited by our autumn programme as we are.
