For Festival 2020, the Festival Committee had built an exciting, eclectic programme with something for everyone. Sadly Covid19 has forced cancellation upon us for both 2020 and 2021, but we are hoping to keep that amazing line up together for Festival 2022. The day's events provisionally include (all subject to confirmation):

  • The ever-popular New Voices panel showcasing the some of the most exciting debut authors around and featuring Eve Smith, Ruby Speechley and Sophie Ward.
  • Sunday Times Bestsellers Ruth Hogan in conversation with the BBC's Adina Campbell.
  • Characters: Debate and Create - with Morgen Bailey
  • Historical thrillers panel with some of the top names in the genre: Antonia Hodgson, Laura Shepherd-Robinson, William Ryan and Antonia Senior
  • Sunday Times Bestseller Cara Hunter in conversation with crime writer Dave Sivers
  • Former Chief Crown Prosecutor and Chief Executive of the UK’s Police & Crime
    Commissioners Nazir Afzal
  • And more!
