This year’s literary line-up will bring you a mixture of big names and more than its fair share of surprises.

As ever, this year we’re seeking out the best new writers around, providing a platform for international and local talent, and playing host to some of our most beloved authors. And don’t forget, there will be a fantastic array of children’s authors onsite across both the literary stages and in the Wildlings Wood, to keep kids occupied throughout the day (and even at bedtime).
