And the award goes to… It’s the crime writing fraternity’s equivalent of the Oscars with host Mark Lawson. Find out Who Won It for the best Who Done It as six short-listed authors vie for one of the most hotly anticipated awards. What’s more, an icon of the genre will be honoured with the Outstanding Contribution accolade. Steady the nerves with a pint of Yorkshire’s finest ale, then continue the celebrations, and commiserations, at the Festival opening party.
Following blistering performances at book festivals across the country over the last year, the crime-fiction super-group, Fun Loving Crime Writers, are finally coming to Theakston Old Peculier Crime Writing Festival. The band, made up of bestsellers Val McDermid, Mark Billingham, Chris Brookmyre, Luca Veste, Doug Johnstone and Stuart Neville, will be happily murdering songs for fun, from Johnny Cash to Elvis Costello by way of Talking Heads and Bruce Springsteen. The most rocking night out this side of a library.
Ticket price includes a glass of wine or pint of Old Peculier
