“It’s the Literature Festival’s twenty first birthday and we’re celebrating with the theme Forever Young. Debut novels, new writers and fresh talent will be at the top of the agenda in 2016. But we’ll also be doffing our party hats to the names who remind us that age is an attitude not a number. Think of next year’s festival as a sort of intellectual face lift. Designed to inspire, delight and excite, this year’s festival isn’t 100% guaranteed to make you feel twenty one. But we’ll give it a damn good go.” Viv Groskop, Artistic Director.
Events will include: Alice Roberts. Vince Cable. Joan Bakewell. Patrick Barkham. Ben Miller. Dom Joly. Tracy Chevalier. John Suchet. Harry Leslie Smith. Austentatious. Cameron at No. 10 – The Inside Story 2010-2015. The Twenty One Best Ever Coming-Of-Age Novels.
