Details

In the wake of the Black Lives Matter movement, 2020 has seen a long overdue spotlight on the woeful lack of representation in publishing, with publishers and agents scrambling for solutions to problems in corporate publishing that have been swept under the carpet for far too long. Our panel celebrates pioneering publishing and debates the drivers needed for the urgent task of creating a new kind of publishing industry. How can publishing best serve itself and readers? And how ultimately can it become a space where different writers can thrive and readers can access new writing which properly reflects and represents the world around us?

In order to manage audiences safely into each of our venues, we ask that you arrive up to 40 minutes before the event starts. See the Plan Your Visit section for detailed venue arrival times.

Venue

Town Hall, Pillar Room

The Town Hall, situated on Imperial Gardens in the centre of Cheltenham comprises of a Grand Main Hall, distinguished by its Corinthian styles columns and coved ceiling. The Main Hall is accompanied by dining and drawing rooms, as well as the Pillar Room bar.

The venue’s early 20th century Edwardian elegance makes it the classic ‘shoebox’ concert hall. With a seating capacity of 900, the Town Hall is perfectly suited to grand symphony orchestra performances with a thrilling impact.
