The Althorp Literary Festival is in the magnificent surroundings of the Spencer Family Estate. Giles Brandreth, Lady Antonia Fraser and Sophie Dahl will be putting in an appearance. The festival runs until Saturday, 13th June, http://www.spencerofalthorp.com/literary-festival.
Hot Air 2015, the Stoke Literary Festival (http://www.stokeliteraryfestival.org/) is also running, on Friday and Saturday. Sathnam Sanghera will be reading from Marriage Material, an updated version of Arnold Bennett’s Old Wives’ Tale and on Friday Michael Palin will also be there.
A visit to a literary festival is the perfect way to combine a day out with a love of literature.
I have been working for Oxford Open Learning since 2010 and love helping my students with their English and History courses. As a teacher and personal tutor, I have taught pupils from all around the world, aged from three to adult. I am often to be found with my head in a book and sometimes I have four or five on the go at the same time. I love learning about History and Art and am passionate about literature.
