£10-14 - tickets on sale here.

Small Wonder Festival is the UK's only festival dedicated to short stories and short form writing. 

Join us for our annual event celebrating the yet-to-be-announced shortlisted writers for the BBC National Short Story Award. The shortlisted writers are joined by former BBC NSSA winner Ingrid Persaud and judge Di Speirs.

Ingrid Persaud won the BBC NSSA with ‘The Sweet Sop’, her first short story about a young Trinidadian man reunited with his absent father via the power of chocolate which judges described as “tender and ebullient, heart-breaking and full of humour”.

Di Speirs is the Book Editor for BBC Radio where she has produced Book of the Week and directed Book at Bedtime and short stories.

The event is held indoors in the Hay Barn, and is being sold at full capacity.
