Play on Words Literary Festival


Following the successful pilot project for this festival last autumn we are already planning for this year. 

The varied programme of events will be programmed between Monday 14th October 2019 and Sunday 3rd November 2019.


Using the medium of literature in the broadest possible sense to support, educate, entertain and hopefully improve the lives of some of the inhabitants of the New Milton area we will, once again, be working in partnership with various local venues.


The Chewton Glen Hotel, Forest Arts, local tea rooms, local Care Homes, Oxfam, the Hampshire Library service, local schools, New Milton Heritage Society and NMRFC were all part of last year’s events and are committed to be a part of the festival once again.


We require funding to support this worthwhile event to assist with booking venues, speakers, presenters and advertising and promotion material.


Advertising opportunities will be available in the event programme, on publicity flyers and banners prior to and during the festival.
