The fifth Lavenham Literary Festival in November 2017 promises another fantastic range of  speaker sessions, with a number of leading authors already 'signed up'. Make sure that you make a note in your diary and  do not miss out!

As at previous festivals, the main focus will be over a  weekend  - this year from Friday 17th to Sunday 19th November, with a speaker at The Guildhall, Lavenham in the early evening on Friday, followed by the festival dinner (with speaker) at The Swan Hotel later that evening.

The main sessions on both Saturday and Sunday will take place in our purpose-built Village Hall, a superb venue - as those who have been before will testify.

Our partners, Waterstone's, will once again be present with book sales and all of the speakers will be available to talk to you after their session and to undertake book signing.

We are also hoping to hold other book-related events during the week leading to the Festival and will include details in future newsletters.
Below are details of some of our 2017 speakers. Further announcements will be made over the coming weeks, along with arrangements for ticket sales.
