The second Romanian-British Literature Festival.
A week of interviews, special events & performances with the brightest & best literary minds from both countries.
Why “Romania Rocks”?
Romania definitely does rock & we want to show you how. It’s also home to a stunning phenomenon of living, growing rock formations called “trovants” – a powerful metaphor for our unique festival.
