Richmond Literature Festival


Whittaker Ave, Richmond,


Join Peter Fiennes as he travels the country following in the footsteps of twelve inspirational writers. Starting in Dorset, shaped by childhood visions of Enid Blyton, and ending on the train that took Charles Dickens to his final resting place in Westminster Abbey, Fiennes roams across centuries with fondness and good humour, bringing modern Britain into focus by peering through the lens of the past.

From the wilds of Skye and Snowdon, to a big night out in Birmingham with J. B. Priestley and Beryl Bainbridge, Footnotes is a series of evocative biographies, a lyrical foray into the past, and a quest to understand Britain through the books, journals and diaries of some of our greatest writers.

Tonight’s event will be chaired by travel writer Tom Chesshyre.
