- Town sponsor Huddersfield Literature Festival 2024
- Tipi launches on Wednesday 17 April from 5pm
- Fun family event at Lawrence Batley Theatre

We're delighted to be sponsoring this year's Huddersfield Literature Festival - and we're inviting Town supporters down to the Lawrence Batley Theatre for its launch tomorrow evening (Wednesday 17 April)!

Held in the Courtyard of the Lawrence Batley Theatre on Queen Street, the Huddersfield Literature Festival Tipi will include a range of activities, such as children’s book readings and Dinky Disco, as well as an appearance from The Tiger Who Came to Tea!

Launching at 5pm tomorrow (Wednesday 17 April 2024), the Club-sponsored Tipi will be open daily until Sunday 28 April 2024! Open between 11am and 10pm - excluding Monday 22 April and Tuesday 23 April, when it will open from 5pm until 10pm - all are welcome to attend.

The Tipi will be open to the public - with a bar ran by Huddersfield Live - and will also be hosting 'open mic' nights, local author talks, craft workshops, and performances from local musicians!

The multi-award-winning HuddLitFest began on Thursday 11 April 2024, with a performance from Poet Laureate Simon Armitage and his band LYR, alongside broadcaster Gavin Esler, comedian Helen Lederer, explorer Ash Bhardwaj, and crime writers Mark Billingham and Abir Mukherjee.

Huddersfield Town Supporter Services Manager Rachel Taylor said:

“As a Club, we’re delighted to be supporting the Huddersfield Literature Festival, and are proud to be the first sponsors of their first ever Festival Tipi.

"We always want Huddersfield Town to support our local community, and this festival is a wonderful part of the cultural life of our town.

"Helping improve, grow and provide enrichment for the town are values as goals the Club and festival share, and we hope this year’s event is another resounding success!”
