The Times Cheltenham Literature Festival 2014
Friday 3 - Sunday 12 October 2014
For ten days every Autumn Cheltenham is transformed into a literary lover’s dream as they welcome over 600 of the world’s finest writers, actors, politicians, poets and leading opinion formers to help celebrate the joy of the written word.
Alongside a programme of nearly 500 debates, interviews and workshops, there is also Book It! a festival within a festival for families and young readers. Where else could you see the Gruffalo rub shoulders with an award-winning novelist, or a Hollywood legend exchange views with political leaders?
Established in 1949, The Times Cheltenham Literature Festival is one of oldest literary events in the world – and with a feast of superstar speakers, an unrivalled setting at the heart of Cheltenham, and the chance to meet your favourite authors and characters – it’s certainly the most fun!
This year speakers include authors Kazuo Ishiguru, Nick Hornby, Ian McEwan, Margaret Attwood and Salmon Rushdie. Comedians John Cleese, Paul Merton and Russel Kane. Sporting personalities Geoffrey Boycott, Kevin Pietersen and Sol Campbell. Actors Dame Judi Dench, Sheila Hancock.
