First Name

Aldeburgh Literary Festival
The Aldeburgh Literary Festival takes place over the first weekend in March each year.

Next year's event will be the 14th Aldeburgh Literary Festival and will take place from Friday 6th to Sunday 8th March 2015. There will be two Nobel Prize Winners, two Chancellors of the Exchequer, one Pulitzer Prize Winner, amongst many other distinguished speakers.

The event is run by The Aldeburgh Bookshop which has been in business for nearly 60 years. The owners, John and Mary James, took on the shop in 2000 . In April 2005 they won a 'Nibby' (the Oscar of the booktrade) for Independent Bookshop of the Year at The British Book Awards. Impressive.
