Henley Literary Festival 2018

The 2018 Henley Literary Festival will be the biggest yet as it expands to nine days for the first time – and the initial wave of speakers announced includes some of the UK's best-loved writers alongside exciting new talent.

Sir Michael Morpurgo, who was knighted this year for his services to literature and charity, will speak on the first day of the Festival in a special family event, with his book Magical Myths and Legends published that week. Later in the week poet Pam Ayres and Everyday Sexism founder Laura Bates both return to Henley after previous sell-outs, while former cabinet minister Sir Oliver Letwin will appear for the first time with his book on the battle for the Conservative Party, Hearts and Minds.

Debut novelists to be featured at the Festival include Guardian and GQ columnist Justin Myers and Singapore-born Sharlene Teo.

The Festival will offer events for children of all ages, from babies and toddlers with Pat-A-Cake storytelling and Frances Ives' enchanting rhyming picture book Maybe the Moon. Older children can enjoy writing workshops and interactive events with Emmy-winning writers Mark Huckerby and Nick Ostler who have scripted TV shows including Thunderbirds are Go! and Danger Mouse.

And the Festival's schools programme will include performance poet A.F. Harrold.

Confirmed speakers include: Kenneth Baker, Antony Horowitz, Alan Johnson, Kate Mosse, Francesca Simon, Mary Berry, Prue Leith, Roddy Doyle, Clare Balding and Douglas Carswell, Sir Michael Morpurgo, Justin Myers, Pam Ayres, Laura Bates, Sharlene Teo and many more.

Tickets are on sale to Friends of the Festival now. 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 are on general sale online and by phone in July 2018.
