Booking opens for literary festival

01/01/2014

Booking is open for the 2014 Gibunco Group Gibraltar International Literary Festival, with more than 50 world-class novelists, chefs, actresses, historians, journalists, singers and public figures appearing on the Rock between November 14 and November 16.

The line-up includes international bestselling novelist Kate Mosse, Booker Prize winner Ben Okri, leading philosopher A C Grayling, comedian and broadcaster Nicholas Parsons, acclaimed actress Maureen Lipman, pictured right, former Archbishop of Canterbury Lord Carey, pictured right, and Carnegie Medal winner Sally Gardner.

There is a strong musical theme running through this year’s festival, with appearances by international singing star and actress Patti Boulaye, and by lead singer of the progressive rock group Marillion, Steve Hogarth.

Also appearing are the provocative journalist and opinion writer Tunku Varadarajan, pictured left, talking about the Gibraltar question and historian and well-known broadcaster John Julius Norwich.

The 2014 programme is almost complete. Details are still to be finalised for some of the schools programme and for some of the public events. These include this year’s Gibraltar Lecture, which will be given by Britain’s leading contemporary historian, Lord Hennessy. Tickets for festival dinners will go on sale on October 30.

Nicky Guerrero, chief executive of Gibraltar Tourist Board said: “We are delighted to be hosting the second ever literary festival in Gibraltar. Last year’s event was a resounding success and we look forward to welcoming back some of the world’s foremost literary talent.”

Sally Dunsmore, festival director, said: “This year’s programme has more than 50 different international speakers coming to Gibraltar – from best-selling authors, to celebrated chefs, broadcasters and world-famous musicians. Gibraltar has a unique cultural heritage and we hope the festival will continue to cement Gibraltar’s reputation on the literary map.”

Booking is now available through this website. For further box office assistance, please contact the Garrison Library on (00350) 200 77418 Monday-Friday 9am-5pm.
