Australia & New Zealand Festival of Literature & Arts Opening Night

Australia & New Zealand Festival of Literature & Arts

Opening tonight to a

Our artists and writers have descended on London. Thankfully it is the celebration of Literature and Arts - and not the weather, which everyone is joining us for.

Earlier this week Clive James gave a poignant interview with Jim Naughtie on the Today programme.  His festival event is already sold out, you may like to catch his interview here.

Saturday is jam-packed with events (as is Friday and Sunday). Explore the life and work of Janet Frame, examine the British arrival in Australia and New Zealand, be enthralled by Rosie and the Roo in her suitcase, be transported by Musica Surfica, enjoy a showcase of new Australian music, be spellbound by Māori storytelling and performance, discuss being brave being curious in LGBTQ Teen Writing, continue our Chapel and Verse series, discuss writing about autism, listen to BAFTA award winning performer Emily Barker, hear from Michael Blakemore in discussion with Kathy Lette, be captivated by Ruthless Jabiru... and so much more!  

You can see all of this for as little as £45 for a day pass (£30 for members).  We're off to finish set-up, see you soon!
