Following the success of last year’s literary event, Write on Kew returns to Kew Gardens this September. The fantastic location drew hundreds of visitors during the first inaugural festival and the great line up for 2016 will ensure even more visitors this year.
Novelists such as Rose Tremain (pictured), AS Byatt and Helen Dunmore will be talking about their work; food writers Nadiya Hussain, winner of The Great British Bake Off last year, and Rick Stein will be among those sharing their foodie thoughts and children’s writers such as Michael Rosen (bottom), Francesca Simon of Horrid Henry fame and Sally Gardner will talk about writing for the younger generation. Politicians Nick Clegg and Alan Johnson (top) may share their ideas of the huge political upheaval of the last few months.
Festival programme directors, Anne Elletson and Tanya Burgess say: ‘There really is no better place in London for a festival of this nature than Kew Gardens, where visitors can immerse themselves in the rich world of books as beauty, creativity and knowledge come together.’
