We Went Virtual!

The Festival was available online this year but we hope to be back with you in Spring 2020 and in person! Thank you as ever for your fantastic support.

“Under the aegis of its patron, Dame Hilary Mantel, the festival has swiftly become one of the most unmissable events of the British literary calendar”
