We are now planning the sixth Literary Festival, which will take place on 15 to 17 November 2019,  with the Literary Dinner at the Swan in Lavenham taking place on Friday 15  November  2019.

We have some great names already signed up, including Pam Ayres and Ian McEwan. Kate Mosse, Tracy Borman, William Clegg,  John Higgs and Phoebe Morgan have also agreed to join us in 2019. There will also be a Creative Writing Workshop with Bridget Holding, which was so much appreciated at the last festival.

November 2018 Dinner

At the November 2018 Dinner, Ian McMillan  gave a scintillating talk on his poetry and prose to a packed Swan Dining Room and had us all in fits of laughter. Many people told us afterwards that he was the best dinner speaker they’d ever heard.
