This autumn, get down to Cliveden House in Buckinghamshire for the highly-anticipated Cliveden Literary Festival. From high politics to low scandal, there’s sure to be something for everyone…
Cliveden Literary Festival 2018
You already know Cliveden as the English country estate steeped in politics, aristocracy, espionage, sex and scandal. So what better home for a celebration of story-telling than this English gem, which has hosted a literary salon since 1666, inspiring writers from Alexander Pope to Sir Winston Churchill.
The festival’s themes this year will include the likes of high politics, scandal, the influence of brilliant women and the role of history in the movies and more.
Literary, political and history stars including Sir Antony Beevor, Niall Ferguson, Dambisa Moyo, Alain de Botton, Sir Simon Schama, Priti Patel, Cherie Blair and Armando Iannucci will be appearing at the two-day event.
Guests of Cliveden Literary Festival will have the opportunity to meet these, and other stars, in the beautiful gardens and impressive staterooms of the Grade 1 Listed house.
