Countdown to Guildford Book Festival begins
The Guildford Book Festival takes place between 13th – 22nd October 2011. This year’s exciting line-up includes Kay Burley, Helen Simonson, Bel Mooney, Francine Stock, Martin Bell, Deborah Bull, Johnny Ball, Steve Furst and Pam Ayres to name but a few.
A particular schedule highlight is the hugely popular Girl’s Night, hosted this year by Jane Wenham-Jones, which takes place on 21st October and features Penny Vincenzi and Penny Jordan. There will also be author events in local schools as part of their commitment to encouraging reading and writing among young people. The festival will be bought to light-hearted close with much loved comedian, broadcaster and scriptwriter Barry Cryer.
