Cheltenham Literature Festival 9-18 October 2009

With its signature blend of award-winning writers, world-renowned thinkers and international star names the Cheltenham Literature Festival will be celebrating its 60th Anniversary this year.

This year’s programme looks back over the last 60 years and questions what the future might bring.  Poet Simon Armitage takes to the helm on the opening Friday, followed by theatre and film director Richard Eyre, national treasure Sandi Toksvig and prize-winning novelist Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie who wrote the superb novel, ‘Half a Yellow Sun’.

The list of people who will be appearing at the festival reads like a who’s who of world-class culture and include Stephen Fry, Michael Palin and Dame Judi Dench.  Casting a light-hearted look at the world of literature look out for Jack Dee, Jo Brand and Rich Hall.

From Hugh Fearnley-Wittingstall to Ben Fogle, the breadth and depth of this literary festival is quite astonishing.
