Here at Harrogate International Festivals, we’re already scheming and plotting for the 2018 Theakston Old Peculier Crime Writing Festival. This weekend we have some very exciting news to share with you. On Sunday 12th November, we will be announcing who the Programming Chair for next year’s Festival will be.

The Programming Chair, along with the fantastic committee, decide the panel themes, which authors will be on stage from the hundreds submitted and which Special Guests you will get to see. It’s a huge job but with this person at the helm, we have no doubt that it’s going to be a BIG one!

Who could it be?

This Chair, it seems, always wears black

This person, is renowned for towering above others

The next Programming Chair has no ‘Middle Name’

Know who it is?

Check back on Sunday 12th November to find out!

Theakston Old Peculier Crime Writing Festival, the Old Swan Hotel, Harrogate, 19-22 July, 2018. Box Office: 01423 562 303.
