Our Patrons

A message from our patrons, Mike & Judy Spenser-Morris

“It is with the greatest pleasure that Judy and I are again the proud Patrons of the Bury St Edmunds Literature Festival. As avid readers, we feel a particular affinity with the Festival’s desire to bring so many wonderful authors to Bury St Edmunds to talk about their work. Our incredible town, that has such a depth of history, is the perfect setting for a Literature Festival.”

A message from our patron Nicola Upson

“With the isolation of recent years still so fresh in our minds, festivals feel more precious than ever, and the one in my home town is particularly special – so I’m thrilled to be looking ahead to this year’s Bury Litfest for the first time as one of its patrons. Growing up in a beautiful town where there’s a story around every corner is a wonderful gift for a writer. Stories are important. They enrich our lives and show us new possibilities. They help us understand who we are and who we’d like to be. And, as this year’s Abbey celebrations have shown, they connect us to our past and lay hopeful foundations for the future."
