The 11th Althorp Literary Festival will take place on Thursday 12th, Friday 13th and Saturday 14th June 2014.
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.
We would like to invite you to enjoy a wonderful summer’s day at the Althorp Literary Festival – or, of course, join us for all three – and be inspired by stellar authors in the setting of one of England’s most beautiful, private, stately homes.
We are delighted to confirm that Emma Bridgewater, Tim Butcher, Jung Chang, Daisy Goodwin, Geordie Greig, Tristram Hunt, Ben Macintyre, Michael Meacher, Charles Moore, Jeremy Paxman, Francis Russell, Brian Sewell, Charles Spencer, Edward St Aubyn, Sir Roy Strong, Ruby Wax and Dr Kate Williams will all be speaking at the Althorp Literary Festival in 2014.
BBC Radio 4 will be broadcasting 'Any Questions?' live from the Althorp Literary Festival on Friday 13th June 2014. Details about tickets to this free event will be available in Spring 2014.
