Marlborough LitFest announces an extra appearance by David Walliams - plus The Oldie comes to town with a literary lunch

ENCORE!!!!ENCORE!!!!Interest in the visit to Marlborough LitFest 2018 by children's author and actor David Walliams has been so great that a second talk has been arranged for the morning of Sunday, September 30.

 

 In addition to his scheduled talk at 3pm, David Walliams will also be speaking in the Memorial Hall at 10.30am - but he will not be signing books after that talk.


The complete LitFest programme will be available next Wednesday - 11 July - when the Box Office opens for tickets to the two David Walliams talks and to nearly 40 other events during the festival weekend.   For more information visit www.marlboroughlitfest.org

A new departure for LitFest weekend will be a literary lunch.  The Oldie magazine will be hosting one of its renowned Literary Lunches in partnership with Marlborough LitFest on Friday, 27 September at Marlborough Golf Club. 

The £58 ticket includes a three-course lunch with wine, followed by ten minute  talks from four speakers: Giles Wood and Mary Killen, Dan Cruikshank and Miranda Seymour. Booking for this standalone event is directly through The Oldie - https://www.theoldie.co.uk/lunches

First launched in 1996, The Oldie runs regular, monthly, literary lunches throughout the year, usually at Simpson’s-in-the-Strand and more recently in association with regional arts and literary festivals in the UK.

Giles Wood and Mary Killen on The Diary of Two Nobodies:

The Oldie's Country Mouse columnist, Giles Wood and his wife Mary have become famous as the stars of Channel 4's Gogglebox. Giles relishes solitude - while Mary thrives in company, regularly escaping to London. They are proof that opposites attract. The Diary of Two Nobodies is a book of comical tales of their domestic misadventures.

Dan Cruikshank on Skyscraper:

Cruickshank tells the story of Gilded-Age Chicago and its 20th-century high-rise buildings. A familiar figure on many television documentaries, he will reflect on the architectural and artistic world of the 1890s and figures such as Charles Rennie Mackintosh.

Miranda Seymour on In Byron’s Wake: The turbulent lives of Lady Byron and Ada Lovelace:

A portrait of two remarkable women, revealing how two turbulent lives were often governed and always haunted by the dangerously enchanting, quicksilver spirit of that extraordinary father who Ada never knew and to whom Lady Byron was so briefly married.


Jan Williamson, Chair of Marlborough LitFest: “We’re flattered that The Oldie has chosen to hold one of its renowned Literary Lunches in Marlborough to coincide with this year’s LitFest.  It’s bound to be good fun and a very entertaining event.  We hope lots of people support it. “
