Ways With Words exists to celebrate and promote the power and potential of the written and spoken word. Words help us share ideas. They have the power to help us learn about and understand ourselves, other people, and the world around us.

In our programmes we strive to bring together compelling authors, to introduce new subjects and reassess age-old debates.

On-site accommodation

You can build your own festival experience and there are a variety of options depending on your budget. Dartington Hall offers hotel accommodation in the East and West Wing of the courtyard where the festival happens. There are simpler single rooms in Higher Close just a two-minute walk away from the festival venues, as well as camping options in the estate.
