Richmond Literature FestivalBroadcasters Andrew Marr, Jonathan Dimbleby and Olympic rower Greg Searle are just some of the speakers taking part in the Richmond Literarture Festival which returns to Richmond this November for its 21st year. The list of confirmed participants includes an impressive line-up of political commentators, well known writers, broadcasters, comedians and poets. There's a huge variety of respected writers and novelists taking part so it won't be hard to pick out at least one you'd like to see.

The programme includes a podcasting workshop, tea, cake and storytelling, poetry, and performances from renowned spoken word artists. There's also a special young people's festival which includes activities for the very young - from aged two upwards. See www.richmondliterature.com for full details and a to download a brochure.
