What happened in 2017…
The extraordinary and seismic events of the last year amazed, horrified and moved us all in different measures. The 2017 Henley Literary Festival was an antidote to the new world of half-truths and fake news. Our speakers were all story tellers who know their subjects, whether it’s history, politics, literature, sport, comedy, science, music or religion.
We learned and laughed, listening to sharp minds delivering gentle talks in an intimate setting. Our worlds got bigger as we heard speakers from India, Pakistan, Israel, Ireland, Russia, Nigeria, the US and more. Young families were entertained by our best ever array of children’s authors. And we enjoyed seven full days of stimulating, surprising and scintillating events.
Here’s to 2018…!
