Henley Literary Festival 2017

Henley Literary Festival has established itself as one of the most prestigious book events in the country.

We're excited to reveal the first 10 events of the 2017 Henley Literary Festival...

Sir Chris Bonington will look back on six decades of mountaineering, Virginia McKenna will reflect on her films, writing and wildlife conservation, while former Private Eye and Oldie editor Richard Ingrams will discuss the justice campaigns of Ludovic Kennedy.

From politics there is Jess Phillips MP, with her much-anticipated Everywoman, and Vince Cable, returning after his 2015 sell-out. Novelists include current UK number one author Kate Fforde, acclaimed debut crime writer Imran Mahmood and transatlantic bestseller Samantha Shannon.

And after our most successful children's festival yet in 2016, this year's line-up for younger readers includes comedian and writer David Baddiel and a family event with Radio 1 DJs Greg James and Chris Smith.

Tickets will be on sale to Friends of the Festival mid-July (date to be announced). You can become a Friend of the Festival from just £35, receiving priority booking as well as exclusive offers, while provide vital support to the festival as a not-for-profit organisation.

Tickets go on general sale online and by phone at the end of July (date to be announced).
