The Guernsey Literary Festival, one of the highlights of the island’s arts calendar, is back in 2022 to celebrate its tenth birthday with events involving writers and speakers of national renown and covering a huge range of subjects.
The line-up this year include novelists Anthony Horowitz and Nadifa Mohamed, comedian Jack Dee, UK senior judge Dame Lady Hale, Yorkshire shepherdess Amanda Owen, scientist Richard Dawkins, Poet Laureate Simon Armitage, journalist and novelist Jonathan Freedland, CEO of Virgin Unite Jean Oelwang and outdoor swimming guru Kate Rew and many, many more.
We have a programme of family events with children’s authors and an extensive programme of education events in schools. There is also a wealth of local writing talent and an art exhibition with watercolours by artist Charlie Buchanan for the new illustrated edition of the Book of Ebenezer Le Page.
The Festival starts in May and culminates in a glorious five days from 22-26 June.
