This year Richmond Literature Festival takes place from 1st November – 30th November 2012, all across Richmond Borough. Book worms everywhere will be extremely excited to hear this as the festival will be exploring literature across a range of genres. From poetry to prose, you are absolutely sure to find something that will capture your imagination.
The festival is packed with an array of special guests such as television’s Andrew Marr, MP Jack Straw, and BBC cook, Prue Leith. With The Olympics still fresh in our minds, those who attend the festival might be lucky enough to glimpse Olympic rower, Greg Searle talking about his own autobiography.
The 2012 Richmond Literature Festival sees a royal theme, and there will be an event looking at Mary Killen’s book, How the Queen Can Make You Happy, as well as Jeremy Archer’s, A Royal Christmas at Hampton Court Palace.
New for the 2012 Richmond Literature Festival is the Literature Salon, a pop-up space housed in an empty shop, it will be holding a range of workshops and events for all ages, and will act as a community hub for people to express their views and opinions.
Make sure not to miss out on this spectacular event!
