The Richmond upon Thames Literature Festival, formerly Book Now, is back and celebrating their 20th anniversary.

“To mark this occasion we have curated a superb line-up of authors, artists, thinkers and speakers.

This year’s programme really does have something for everyone – foodies can indulge in our fantastic food weekend in the elegant surroundings of 17th Century Ham House, Jeremy Paxman will be entertaining at Richmond Theatre while younger literary fans can get their groove on to the sounds of Charlie Dark’s Dr Octopus Show or take part in our podcasting workshop led by BBC Radio 1 producer Amy Redmond.

Of course no birthday would be complete without a party and ours is no exception – Caught By The River will be hosting a literary shindig on board the Richmond Royale, featuring authors and special guests playing their favourite tracks."
