Seven days and counting! Australia & New Zealand Festival of Literature & Arts
Seven days and counting!
Programmes are printed, posters are up, our guest speakers are beginning to appear in and around the city, tickets are selling fast - with our opening event almost sold-out, and our closing event a sell-out!
The support of our crowdfunding campaign has been overwhelming, we've nearly reached target with six more campaign days to go - but we're not there yet, let's keep spreading the word.
For our festival fans living in the UK, have a wonderful bank holiday weekend. We will be in touch again on Tuesday when the big countdown begins... not long now until we bring the "edge of the world" to London.
