Chiswick Book Festival 2010 / 17th – 19th September
Following the sell-out success of last year’s first Chiswick Book Festival, the second Chiswick Book Festival will take place from Friday 17th to Sunday 19th September 2010.
The 2010 line-up includes some of the top names from the literary and artistic world: Terry Pratchett, Andrew Motion, Val McDermid, Adele Parks, Sadie Jones, Prue Leith, Michael Wood, Robert McCrum, Allison Pearson, Rebecca Frayn and Claire Tomalin.
Once again, the Chiswick Book Festival will be based in the heart of Chiswick, at St Michael & All Angels Church & Parish Hall, with events also taking place at the popular Tabard Theatre and other local venues. The nearest Tube station is Turnham Green.
‘We were delighted by the response to the first Chiswick Book Festival last year, and 2010’s event looks just as exciting,’ says Torin Douglas, the Festival Director. ‘Chiswick is home to numerous authors and publishers and has a strong literary heritage. It’s great that it is now re-establishing itself as a place where people who love books can celebrate the best in literature – while helping support reading and literacy.’
The Chiswick Book Festival is a non-profit-making, community event. The 2009 Festival raised over £6,195 for the three chosen charities, all of which support reading, literacy and the arts. This year’s Festival charities will be announced in due course and the Festival continues to be supported by Chiswick Library, Hounslow and Ealing Councils, local businesses and local bookshops, including Waterstone’s in Chiswick High Road, where tickets can be ordered from mid-August.
