The Books Tent

Readers, writers and lovers of literature; assemble

Entirely devoted to the literary arts, The Books Tent plays host to some of the finest writers alive today.

Expect takeovers from big and small publishers, talks and debates, masterclasses, workshops, poetry, readings and a rapt audience of fellow lovers of the written word.

There's also a fabulous bookshop with fabulous coffee (and wine in the evenings), run by our pals at Phlox Books.
