At the forefront of the literary scene thanks to its stellar line-up of literary names in relaxed and intimate settings, Raworths Harrogate Literature Festival was picked out as ‘One of the UK’s best Literary Festivals’ by Harpers Bazaar and ‘One of the Top 3 Literary Festivals in the UK’ by the Guardian.
We celebrate great writing and leading thinkers, sharing stories to as wide an audience as possible with a diverse programme designed to entertain, inspire, educate, challenge and amuse.
With the announcement of celebrated speakers – from Sir Ranulph Fiennes and Victoria Hislop to Andy McNab and Dr Hilary Jones – this year’s Festival, which takes place from Thursday 19 – Sunday 22 October, is the hot ticket on the national Festival circuit.
Broadcaster Gaby Roslin, husband and wife team David and Carrie Grant, comedian Rosie Holt, celebrity chef Rosemary Shrager, former Liberal Democrat leader Sir Vince Cable and royal correspondent Robert Hardman will also join a host of bestselling authors descending on The Crown Hotel, Harrogate, to share their stories.
Raworths Harrogate Literature Festival is recognised for championing up-and-coming talent along with attracting best-selling authors, influential politicians, historians, journalists, comedians and stars of the screen.
Tickets are available to book online here or via the Box Office on 01423 562303. Keep an eye out for more programme announcements coming soon!
