Theakstons Old Peculier Crime Writing Festival 2015 programme announced:

Theakstons Old Peculier Crime Writing Festival


Just when you thought the special guest announcements have finished... We have one more up our sleeves
Rory Bremner, the popular comedian and impressionist, will be coming to Harrogate this summer to interview Lee Child at 8.30pm on Saturday 18th July 2015.
We wonder how many impressions he will do?


Each week we will be giving you further information on our Pick of The Panels.

The Black Art of Criticism

Friday 17th July | 10.00pm | Tickets: £10

We might pretend to ignore reviews, but we all seek a good quote to put on the jacket of the paperback and some comments can be genuinely hurtful. Should authors ever review the books of their friends? Including N J Cooper, Jake Kerridge, S.J Parris, Stav Sherez and Ann Widdecombe.

Strange Lands

Saturday 18th July | 2.00pm | Tickets: £10

A writer’s imagination can be triggered by extreme environments. Find out what influences Mark Lawson, MJ McGrath, Hakan Nesser, Craig Robertson, Michael Robotham and Louise Welsh.

Celebrating Patricia Highsmith

Sunday 19th July | 10.00am | Tickets: £10

2015 marks Tom Ripley’s 60th birthday and we’re delighted to celebrate the author and her work with Martin Edwards, Sarah Hilary, Peter James, Peter Swanson and Andrew Taylor.
