17th - 25th
September 2022

2021 was a great success. Thank you for coming and we look forward to seeing you next year  when the Festival will run from 17th to 25th September 2022

What a great 2021 Festival. 100% of the people who responded to our questionnaire said they would recommend the Festival to a friend - customer satisfaction doesn't get any better. We were priviledged to be able to listen to Simon Armitage, Baroness Hale, Sally Magnusson, Claudia Hammond, Remi Adekoya, Kia Abdullah, AA Dhand, Henri Ward, Sharon Wright and Laura Wood along with a number of local authors. The weather was kind for our great variety of beautiful and informative walks. Thank you for attending and a big thank you to all our sponsors, donors, advertisers, venues, accommodation providers, and last but certainly not least our wonderful volunteers.

This was our 16th Festival but the first organised by our new charity. We made a surplus on the 2021 Festival, which along with some generous donations, will enable us to go forward into future years with some confidence. As soon as the 2021 Festival ended we started planning for 2022. Keep your eyes on our website for some exciting news. We hope to see you in Richmond from 17th to 25th September 2022.
