The 2016 Richmond Literature Festival is now over.


Thank you to everyone who supported this year’s festival - you helped to make this special 25th anniversary year one of the most successful in the festival’s history.


We hosted a stellar line up of some of today’s most celebrated literary stars. Highlights for many people included Margaret Drabble discussing her latest book The Dark Flood Rises, Sebastian Barry in conversation with Erica Wagner on his new book Days Without End and Anne Sebba talking about the lives and loves of women in Paris in the 1940s. There were also workshops, performances, film screenings – and a lot of coffee!


We would love to hear what you thought of the festival, and your ideas for the next one- click here to fill out a feedback form.


Programming for the 2017 festival will commence shortly - follow us @richmondlitfest and click here to sign up to the festival mailing list to stay up to date.
