The programme for the sixth Literary Festival, which will take place on 15 to 17 November 2019, is now finalised, and includes  great names such as  Pam Ayres, Ian McEwan, Kate Mosse, Tracy Borman, and many more, as you can see below. There will also be a Creative Writing Workshop with Bridget Holding, which was so much appreciated at the last festival.

The Literary Dinner at the Swan in Lavenham will take place on Friday 15  November  2019, and we are fortunate to have as a speaker Ruth Jones, best known for her television writing, such as BBC 1’s Gavin and Stacey. It promises to be, again, a hugely entertaining and pleasurable evening.

Author Ruth Jones is best known for her outstanding and award-winning television writing – BBC 1’s Gavin and Stacey, in which she played the incorrigible Nessa, and Sky 1’s Stella, in which she played the titular role. She has won acclaim for her performances in BBC dramas Tess of the D’Urbervilles, Little Dorrit and Hattie, as well as comedies Little Britain, Saxondale and Nighty Night
