The annual Cheltenham Literature Festival is the cultural equivalent of Glastonbury, so if you’re a bonafide bookworm, you’d be mad to miss it.
Returning on 2nd October 2015, it’ll play host to over 600 big name writers, poets, politicians and thinkers for live debates, discussions, comedy sessions and even brunches. Amongst the eclectic mix of stars this year will be Caitlin Moran, Ronnie Wood, Chrissie Hynde, Nigella Lawson, Rick Stein, Sue Perkins and Millie Mackintosh.
Not for the faint-hearted, culture vultures can enjoy Lynn Barber, Camilla Long and A.A. Gill discussing their best and worst food, TV and film experiences of the year, British Vogue Editor Alexandra Shulman will be on hand to chat about her new book The Parrots with The Times Fashion Director, Anna Murphy, and food fans will be able to learn the secrets of New York-style dining as part of a three-course meal with Polpo’s Russell Norman (don’t mind if we do).
Tickets are on sale now and selling fast, so if an atmosphere of books, food and wine in picture-perfect Cheltenham sounds up your street, get booking now.
