WHAT'S ON?

We are so honoured to be able to offer such a wonderful array of talent from the UK and beyond.  Tickets are now on sale, alongside an overview of the event, however, we shall be regularly be adding further information regarding individual talks, workshops, social gatherings and more as we get closer to the event, so do subscribe to our newsletter.

 

Please be assured that we have our venues booked, however, due to not knowing what restrictions (if any) we shall be operating under in September, we have chosen to leave most venues TBC for now, so that we have the flexibility to use all available space as proactively as possible.  We are blessed to have outdoor venues at our disposal too, so please book your tickets with confidence and we shall be in touch with venue confirmation before the event.  All venues are within the village of Burford.

We currently have 3 workshops on offer: a book binding workshop with Lorna Gray on Friday afternoon, a junior writing workshop with Francesca Gibbons on Friday afternoon, an adult Creative Writing workshop with Sue Leigh followed by Afternoon Tea on Monday - something for everyone!  We also have two wonderful evening events, on Friday with local favourite Brian Kay, and An Evening of Poetry, Music & Ivor Gurney, hosted by Kate Kennedy, Fiona Sampson and Sue Leigh.  More info on these events to follow, but don't delay in booking your ticket now!

At the bottom of the page you will find quick links to daily overviews that also allows you to purchase tickets for each day's events.  If you have any questions, or suggestions to how we can improve your experience, please let us know!
