Within the walls of Galle Fort, stories do a roaring trade. Fact, fiction and all that falls in between: Galle Literary Festival invites diverse voices in poetry and prose to drop anchor in the south of Sri Lanka.
From philosophy to identity, cricket to crime thrillers, our vibrant events programme champions topics to get the town talking. Like the lighthouse on the bastion, we’re a beacon for the curious on the shores of the Indian Ocean.
