Althorp Literary Festival. Dates, details, authors | Literary Festivals & Book Award News | Scoop.it
Literary Festivals's insight:

The 11th Althorp Literary Festival will take place on Thursday 12th, Friday 13th and Saturday 14th June 2014 at Althorp House, Northamptonshire, NN7 4HQ.

 

The Althorp Literary Festival, sponsored principally by Christie’s, is a unique celebration of Literature. In its first ten years, the Festival has played host 200 novelists, historians, comedians, actors, politicians, sportsmen and television personalities.

 

"The Althorp Literary Festival has become one of England's premier summer events, with an eclectic line-up of speakers stimulating and entertaining an appreciative and ever-growing audience. The buzz of these three days is electrifying, with authors frequently taking the time to write and say that Althorp is their favourite literary festival - this is pretty humbling, but also extremely encouraging. The aim always was for Althorp to be something special in the calendar."
