WELCOME TO BIBURY LITERARY FESTIVAL

Welcome to BibLit 2024, the Bibury Literary Festival, held in what William Morris once described as “the most beautiful village in England”.

We have a fantastic line-up this year, including musical events and wonderful writers. Our first author is Peter Frankopan, who will be discussing his new book, The Earth Transformed: An Untold History on Saturday 13 April.

The main festival will be held on Saturday 20 April and Sunday 21 April - Free Parking for BibLit visitors. Our writers include Sir Nicholas Coleridge, Ian Fleming biographer Nicholas Shakespeare, Boris Johnson biographer Andrew Gimson, James Read – shortlist by Fortnam & Mason for the Food Book award 2024 and Robert Hardman, whose latest book looks at the first months of the reign of Charles III.

On the evening of Saturday 20 April there will be a discussion on writing memoir and biography featuring Anne de Courcy, Jane Ridley and Lady Henrietta Spencer Churchill.
