for The 10th Althorp Literary Festival as your favourite British event.

Over the years the event's reputation has grown and grown. Authors who have spoken include: Boris Johnson, Sebastian Faulks, Alastair Campbell, Jeremy Vine, Twiggy, Ronnie Corbett and Simon Schama, amongst many other household names.
The popularity of the festival can be summed up by Bill Bryson & Fay Weldon, who both chose the Althorp Literary Festival as their global favourite in a British Airways 'High Life' magazine survey in 2010.
