Gladfest 2016



What a festival it was in 2016!

Val McDermid (Splinter the Silence), Scarlett Thomas (The Seed Collectors), Michel Faber(Undying), Loyd Grossman (Benjamin West and the Struggle to be Modern), Richard Holloway(A Little History of Religion), Sarah Perry (The Essex Serpent) and more entertained us with talks and workshops across the weekend (see the full list here) and there was music from local choirs and even a harpist!

Recordings of all talks are on the Library's Soundcloud page, and you can find our Gladfest 2016 highlights video here!

You can also try to spot yourself in our photo album.

Next year is Gladfest's fifth birthday so expect a bumper edition!

We'll see you next then!
