In light of the growing concerns about the global spread of COVID-19, and the new national safety measures imposed by the President, the Festival – in consultation with our headline sponsor Porcupine Ridge Wine and with Franschhoek Wine Valley and Tourism – has decided to cancel FLF 2020.

After a year of planning and organising, we are obviously devastated, but for the safety of all concerned, it is our responsibility to cancel. Our beloved authors and loyal visitors come first.

We would like to sincerely thank Porcupine Ridge Wine, our other stakeholders – and you, our interesting and interested audiences – for your support.

Please stay safe and keep reading.

The FLF Team.
