The most exciting names in literature, politics, science, journalism, broadcasting and more!
Today, we can reveal the full 2015 line-up for The Times and The Sunday Times Cheltenham Literature Festival.
A feast of fiction with Booker-winning and international authors such as Jonathan Franzen, Anita Shreve, Jane Smiley and Peter Carey; a fabulous Spiegeltent hosting unique New York nights, splendid Sunday lunch with Ben Fogle, dinner with Gizzi Erskine and Berlin cabaret; and a fabulous Festival experience featuring pop-up restaurants, on-site bookshops and fun for the whole family – all in the beautiful surroundings of Cheltenham’s Imperial Square and Montpellier Gardens.
For our Festival theme we consider Defining Moments of the past, present and future across a series of events, and speakers from many walks of life will descend on the town: including The Rolling Stones’ Ronnie Wood, domestic goddess Nigella Lawson, world-renowned jockey AP McCoy, larger than life Reginald D. Hunter, celebrated travel writer Bill Bryson and The Pretenders’ Chrissie Hynde.
