Huge thanks to everyone who made the 2015 Festival so spectacular!

The Theakstons Old Peculier Crime Writing Festival, now looking excitedly towards our 14th year, is a firm date in the literary calendar and has achieved international acclaim for the programming, organisation and atmosphere. It is ranked as one of the top three literary festivals in the UK by The Guardian, and featured in The Independent’s ‘The 50 Best Festivals’.

Throughout the years the Festival has welcomed a host of international names to Harrogate, including Harlan Coben, Michael Connelly, Patricia Cornwell, Jeffrey Deaver, Dennis Lehane, Jeff Lindsay, Jo Nesbo, George Pelecanos, Karin Slaughter and J.K Rowling, writing as Robert Galbraith, to name but a few!

In 2015; we sold just under 14,000 tickets, we programmed over 90 authors and staged over 30 events.

If you are, like us, suffering post festival blues, relive your memories and see if you can spot yourself over on our 2015 gallery. What a weekend!
