Welcome to the fifth Hampstead and Highgate Literary Festival. The Festival is now truly a celebration of writing for readers of all ages with the addition of Kidsfest, a day of 'Kid for a Quid' events for children, and Poetry in the Park, a free event in neighbouring Golders Hill Park. The LJCC is delighted to be hosting the Festival once again in association with our media partner, the Ham&High newspaper and Daunt Books who will be providing books for sale and book signings after each event. Our thanks too to Festival Sponsors, Yelverton Properties, Kidsfest Sponsors, the Diana and Allan Morgenthau Charitable Trust and the City of London Corporation for joining us to provide Poetry in the Park. We hope that you will come and enjoy three fantastic days.
