WELCOME to Sevenoaks Literary Festival 2018!

We have an all-star line-up for you this year. From bestselling novelists to music scholars, there will be something to suit all tastes. And this year’s Festival is excited to introduce the Young Readers Festival Day with a sparkling range of events for children and their families. For readers of novels, we have Sebastian Faulks and Patrick Gale; for lovers of nature, Patrick Barkham; for those interested in politics and current affairs, activist Gina Miller, Tessa Dunlop on women’s view of the last 100 years, and journalist Luke Harding on Russia and Donald Trump; for biography fans, Vita Sackville-West’s granddaughter Vanessa Nicolson, and Nell Stevens on Mrs Gaskell; for music-lovers, conductor Jane Glover on Handel; and for poetry-lovers, a delicious afternoon listening to poet-photographer Virginia Astley while her daughter plays the harp.

Now all you have to do is make your choices and buy your tickets from 28 July…
