From Glyndebourne to Glastonbury - A social calendar for the 21st century
The Sunday Times Oxford Literary Festival
16 March, 2013 - 24 March, 2013
Christ Church, Oxford
Over 350 writers flock to the famous university city to discuss affairs literary, political, historical, environmental and culinary - to name just a few - for the eight-day Oxford Literary Festival, hosted by the atmospheric Christ Church College with its Tudor hall and cloisters.
Visitors can also book to join guided literary walks, lunches and dinner parties with prominent authors. Since 2008, a creative writing course has also formed part of the programme.
The 2013 line-up is an exciting one, with plenty of award-winners headlining the festival, including the winner of the 2012 Booker award, Hilary Mantel and the author of the Costa Book of the Year, Andrew Miller.
