Chiddingstone Castle Literary Festival
4th May - 7th May 2019
‘Chiddingstone Castle Literary Festival is a gem among literary festivals. The beautiful setting, the sense of history, and the warmth of the organisers give it a truly intimate feel. It’s a gift for both the author and the book-loving audience.’ Anna Pasternak, author of Lara: The Untold Love Story that Inspired Doctor Zhivago Following last year’s huge success and the increasing popularity of Chiddingstone Castle’s Literary Festival, this year’s event has expanded to four days, bringing yet more wonderful entertainment to West Kent, for both adults and children.
The four days of talks, performances and workshops are set in the historic house and grounds and have been carefully curated to ensure there is something for everyone of all ages and interests. This is the Festival’s most ambitious programme yet, spilling over with riches and diversity that range from a discussion on the way our genes affect what we eat, with BBC TV’s Horizon geneticist Dr Giles Yeo and author Vybarr Cregan-Reid to model making with the creators of Wallace and Gromit!
