It’s literature, but not as we know it…

Out of this Word brings top writers, poets, playwrights, artists and musicians from the UK to the East Riding to celebrate the power of language.

There’ll be no shortage of opinion as the newly created Lit Up Festival plays host to Cosey Fanni Tutti, Ben Okri and Jenny Éclair, while the DiscovERstories pop-up theatre production will challenge John Godber and a trio of emerging playwrights to reimagine local stories as they tour the region’s libraries. Plus see what happens when Hull-born artist, Patrick Coyle, takes over one of the UK’s busiest Leisure Centres.

Join in the conversation changing the look of literature into something Out of this Word.

Events take place over a range of destinations, including Haltemprice Leisure Centre and East Riding libraries.

The full programme is to be announced soon.
