Thanks to your amazing support, the recent BookFest Sunset Festival, which ran from 15 – 19 September, was a huge success, presenting more than 40 events with both high-profile speakers and emerging writers in its Covid-safe marquee village on Wimbledon Common.
Among the highlights of Sunset Festival were appearances from veteran actor Miriam Margolyes; punk poet John Cooper Clarke; celebrity chef Rick Stein; star of the hit musical Hamilton Giles Terera; politicians Vince Cable and Jess Phillips (who was zoomed in live from Westminster); broadcasters Anita Rani and Robert Peston; virtuoso cellist Steven Isserlis; ballet star Sergei Polunin; philosopher AC Grayling; and leading lights in fiction writing Elif Shafak, Sebastain Faulks and Christy Lefteri.
