Due to the ongoing situation with  COVID-19, this event has been cancelled.  Words Weekend Artistic Director Beth Gallimore’s statement reads:

It is with huge sadness that we have taken the decision to cancel Words Weekend at The Lowry following the escalation of COVID-19 in Europe. Although this is an incredibly difficult decision, the health of authors and audiences must be the priority.

The cancellation of London Book Fair was an early indicator of the impact COVID-19 would have on our industry, and given the fast-changing nature of the situation, we feel we must act quickly and decisively.

All ticket holders will be contacted directly by the venue.

We will be pressing ahead with our plans for Bury St Edmunds in May, our spring 2021 festival at Sage Gateshead, and hope to plan another festival at The Lowry in the future.


Joseph Knox is a crime writer from the North West who wrote his first novel Sirens while he was the crime fiction buyer for Waterstones. All of his books are set in Manchester in all its gritty glory, with Knox’s protagonist Aidan Watts as flawed and broken a character as you could hope for. Joseph will be discussing his novels, why Manchester is a perfect setting for him and the growing crime fiction genre with Jake Kerridge, journalist, crime fiction aficionado and the crime fiction critic for the Telegraph.
