Weekend Rover Classic

  • Thursday 23rd – Sunday 26th July 2020
  • The Old Swan Hotel, Harrogate
  • Tickets: £245

Due to the ongoing coronavirus situation, we have made the disappointing decision not to hold this event in July 2020.

These Classic Rover Tickets may be sold out, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get your #TheakstonsCrime fix. You can still buy a Weekend break Package to ensure you don’t miss a second of the action and the second tier of Rover tickets alongside individual tickets for the full programme are due to go on sale in April 2020.

You won’t miss a second of the action – our Weekend Rover tickets are one of the best ways to enjoy every moment of the Theakston Old Peculier Crime Writing Festival.

Whether you’re happier chatting away with your new friends and some rising crime fiction stars at the bar, or you prefer to make the most of your guaranteed seat for all of our Special Guest and Panel events, a Weekend Rover entitles you entry to everything on the main programme – what could be better?

Here’s the nitty gritty – a Weekend Rover includes:

  • A guaranteed seat at all Festival events from 8pm Thursday 23 July to 1pm on Sunday 26 July (there are a few exclusions*, but we always include all of our Special Guests and Panel events);
  • A delicious lunch at the Old Swan Hotel on Friday and Saturday so you don’t miss a minute;
  • A complimentary Festival Goodybag as a gift from the festival to say thanks for coming!

*Excludes Creative Thursday writing workshop, Dead Good Reader Awards, Author Dinners and any other publisher events on-site.
