First Biblit festival in March

There is strong Biographers’ Club interest in the first Bibury Literary Festival, which takes place in the Cotswolds town on Saturday 23 March. Former Club Chairman Anne de Courcy has, with three friends, set it up; and current Chairman Jane Ridley will be among the speakers.


Anne de Courcy says: “[Biblit] will differ from other festivals in that tickets will be much cheaper – a full day and evening pass, covering six sessions, with wine and canapés during the last one, costs only £35 – and in its atmosphere. Bibury, on the river Coln in the heart of the Cotswolds, is one of the most beautiful villages in England.”
