National Crime Reading Month

National Crime Reading Month

Run by the Crime Writers’ Association in partnership with national charity The Reading Agency, NCRM is a festival that takes place throughout June across the UK and Ireland, culminating in the prestigious CWA Daggers ceremony at the end of the month. It aims to promote and celebrate crime reading across the genre through exciting events and activities in bookshops, libraries, museums, theatres and online.

After a hugely successful month in 2022, we’re looking forward to June 2023, when we’re also celebrating 70 years of the CWA!


All events are the responsibility of their respective organisers.
