Norwich’s annual deadly festival of crime writing takes place each September and is a collaboration between the University of East Anglia and Writers’ Centre Norwich.

The 2017 festival took place on 14 - 17 September, and featured six world-class headliners: Val McDermid, Martina Cole, Anthony Horowitz, Arne Dahl, Mark Billingham and Stuart MacBride. In the past, we've also hosted events with  Peter James, Ian Rankin, Lee Child, Charlie Higson and many more.

Noirwich Crime Writing Festival celebrates bestselling and upcoming crime writing over four days of author events, writing workshops and a very bloody brunch complete with Bloody Marys.
