Auckland Writers Festival cancels 2020 shows due to COVID-19 threat

Auckland Writers Festival regrets to advise the cancellation of its May 2020 festival, owing to the critical Covid-19 situation and the Government's new limits on mass public gatherings.

"We're immensely proud of the programme for our 20th festival that was launched just last week. We are extremely sad not to have the opportunity to deliver it to our writing and reading community, but the health and well-being of all must be our paramount concern at this difficult time."

All purchased tickets will be fully refunded via Ticketmaster, and we will be in touch with all stakeholders over the coming days to discuss our change of plans.

Thank you for your ongoing support for the Festival and we look forward to seeing you again in 2021.

*Please see our news page for refund processing info.
