Thank you for making this year’s Going West Festival great! The 23rd Going West Festival presented 46 events across 8 venues with 136 participants engaging more than 3000 people at events and thousands more in public and online.

We send a heartfelt thank-you to all our writers, facilitators, performers, sponsors, partner organisations, patrons, suppliers, staff, crew and especially to our wonderful audience - whose laughter, tears and feedback made it all worthwhile.

We have begun planning 2019. Attending the Wellington Lit Crawl as part of our ongoing research to make Going West Festival 2019 the best ever! Watch this space for next September’s schedule, or subscribe to our e-news for energetic updates.
