Londons first travel writing festival

Londons first travel writing festival

London’s first Travel Writing Festival will take place at the Kings Place cultural hub in central London this month. The event features well-known writers and celebrities from the travel world, including TV traveller Michael Palin, chef Atul Kochhar and comedian Tony Hawks.

The mix of authors, journalists, entertainers, chefs and wine (the Rotunda bar is serving “wine flights” to give you tasters of wines from around the world) should ensure that the event satisfies both those who take their travel writing seriously, as well as those who prefer to read than be read.

The events are spread over a weekend, though most take place on the Sunday June 23. Each can be booked individually, or a “Sunday Pass” is recommended if you plan to make the most of the festival and attend up to five different talks. There will also be pop-up travel bookshops to browse, and the chance to have a drink by the canal.

You will, of course, find some rather fine travel writing in the latest edition of Conde Nast Traveller, which is available in the Stanford’s bookshop at the event. For great travel writing delivered to your door every month, subscribe here.

The Kings Place hub is situated behind Kings Cross and St Pancras stations, 90 York Way, London, N1, and holds curated cultural weeks throughout the year. The Travel Writing Festival takes place on Saturday 22 and Sunday 23 June. To see a full itinerary of talks and events visit the Kings Place website. Sunday Passes cost ?25.
