Hampstead & Highgate Literary FestivalOrganised and hosted by the London Jewish Cultural Centre, the Hampstead and Highgate Literary Festival has quickly become a much-loved event in London's literary calendar. This will be the sixth time the three day book festival returns since launching back in 2009, putting well known authors - most of whom come from north London - in the spotlight. Top authors and celebrities who have taken part in the festival in the past have included Ruby Wax, Nick Ross, Baroness Gillian Shephard, Mark Billingham, Tracy Chevalier, and Maggie O'Farrell. With close to 60 festival events to choose from, held in the former home of prima ballerina Anna Pavlova in a picturesque part of town, it's a popular event. Added to these are creative writing workshops, book sales and signings at nearby Daunt Books as well as Kidsfest for younger readers, and Poetry in the Park on the bandstand in Golders Hill Park.
