Literary Festival

The 12th Althorp Literary Festival will take place from Thursday 11th - Sunday 14th June 2015.

Literature is synonymous with Althorp – part of its history. George John, the Second Earl Spencer, amassed one of the greatest private libraries of its time, amounting to over 43,000 volumes of priceless first editions, sprawling through the house’s grandest rooms.

Enjoy a wonderful summer’s day at the Althorp Literary Festival – or, of course, join us for all four – and be inspired by stellar authors in the setting of one of England’s most beautiful, private, stately homes.

Authors already confirmed for 2015 include Lady Antonia Fraser, Bettany Hughes, Andrew Roberts, William Sitwell and Charles Spencer.
