ArchWay With Words is an annual festival featuring well-loved and acclaimed authors, scientists, historians, biographers, poets, comics, performers, film-makers, singers, and musicians. Between them they have sold millions of books and won shelves-full of awards and entertained people all over the world. There are oodles of opportunities to meet experts, have fun and let your creativity blossom in writing workshops and singing opportunities.
AWWW’s debut was in 2013, commissioned by the Archway Town Centre Group (ATCG) http://archwaylondon.com/and funded by Islington Council and Word2013. In 2014 the AWWW sequel attracted some exciting sponsors who stepped in to boost Islington's funding with Bode Hill House Archway, and Essential Living on board.
Bode are developing Hill House bringing new housing, new and improved shopping and an attractive outside space.. Both developers have generously continued their sponsorship for AWWW2016.
Essential Living developed Archway Tower, bringing new housing available now in the newly named 'Vantage Point'. This year there an event will take place in their communal area at the top of the building.
The main venue for the festival is the Archway Methodist Church who are especially generous offering their Worship Centre. It is warm, inviting, well equipped and accessible. Archway Library hosts free events, along with Archway Market, Hargrave Hall and St John's Church; Kogan Academy Drama School, The Hideaway Bar and The Mother Red Cap and Archway Tavern Nightclub Kolis are also in line-up of interesting and diverse venues.
AWWW is great value for money with most events only a fiver, and many absolutely free. Archway is a fascinating place to live with an abundance of great reasons to visit; it's a terrific setting for a story.
