“I could easily imagine Dickens, Addison or Dr Johnson doing a brilliant ‘set’ at the London Word Festival.”
– The Times’ Richard Morrison, 2008

“I had a lovely time. One night I was playing glockenspiel behind Alexei Sayle, the next I was coming on pretending to be deceased Shakespeare critic and word fanatic Ivor Brown. It’s just that kind of festival.”
– Helen Zaltzman, 2009

“Very much the antidote to the cosy world of celebrity-laden literary festivals”
– The Guardian, 2010
