Cliveden Literary Festival Returns

The Cliveden Dining Room, Maidenhead Sat, 23rd October 2021

The Cliveden Literary Festival is returning for a fourth year on Saturday 23 and Sunday 24 October. Against the magnificent backdrop of Cliveden House,  the festival will present a full programme that celebrates literature, history and politics – with an array of world-renowned writers, thinkers and opinion makers from across the globe. The festival is held throughout the estate with dining options available in The Cliveden Dining Room, The Estate Grill and various pop up destinations.

Established in 2017, the agenda-setting literature festival embodies Cliveden House’s long tradition as a political and literary salon and will again feature a high-profile line-up of writers, historians, politicians and cultural figures.

Declared by Ian McEwan as ‘probably the world’s best small literary festival’, and hailed by Alain de Botton as ‘the most dignified and beautiful literature festival on the planet’, the 2021 Festival is not to be missed.
