Gladfest is the UK’s friendliest literary festival in its only residential library!
The festival is five years old this year and we have an extra special lineup to celebrate…
Big names include TV historian Diarmaid MacCulloch (All Things Made New: The Reformation), Sarah Perry (The Essex Serpent), broadcaster Sally Magnusson (Where Memories Go: Why Dementia Changes Everything), journalist and biographer Kathryn Hughes (Victorians Undone), Gladfest friend Francesca Haig (The Forever Ship) and BBC Official Historian Jean Seaton (Pinkoes and Traitors).
We also welcome a number of the country’s brightest breakthrough talents including Dan Richards (Climbing Days), Natasha Pulley (The Bedlam Stacks), Joanna Cannon (The Trouble with Goats and Sheep) and Tara Guha (Untouchable Things), and there’ll be an exclusive rehearsed reading of their new adaptation of Chekhov’s Uncle Vanya from Theatr Clwyd.
