What's happening at Gladstone's Library

At  Gladstone's Library, we have an evolving programme of courses and events that keep us connected with a wide range of writers and thinkers – see our programme brochure for full details and below to see some of the highlights coming up soon.



Join us for a micro literary festival where you can choose the events that you would like to attend, have dinner with Gladstone’s writers in residence and then gather round the hearth for stimulating and entertaining conversation.

Be prepared to be enthralled and informed.

Have you seen our aerial video courtesy of Skyquad? This incredible video shows the exterior of Gladstone's Library in all its glory. Enjoy!

We hope that you didn't miss our Warden, Peter Francis on Radio 4 Midweek where he spoke about our favourite 'health spa of the mind' with Sir Richard Eyre, Andrew Fusek Peters, Abbie Ross and Libby Purves. If you did, don't worry we have a link to it here.
