Cliveden Literary Festival 2023

The Cliveden Dining Room, Maidenhead Sat, 30th September 2023 until Sun, 1st October 2023

Enjoy an exciting weekend of stimulating discussion and debate with this year's stellar line up of speakers.

Buy your tickets to hear Zadie Smith or Maggie O'Farrell explain their magical literary craft and broader discussions of the future of literary fiction; Mary Bear and Tom Holland describe the power of history-making from Ancient Rom to the present day, podcasts and all; and panels on matters as urgent as Middle Eastern warfare with Peter Frankopan and modern espionage with ex-MI6 chief Alex Younger; the salvation of the British economy with Emma Walmsley, or the likelihood of a Labour election triumph with Michael Gove and David Lammy. From politics to warfare domestic and global, to the meaning of imagination and creativity will play in a role of AI, and much, much more, these are the most urgent and stimulating questions of our age. This is not a weekend to miss. The event is held in various rooms and temporary structures throughout Cliveden and its estate.
