The Guernsey Literary Festival 2021
Fascinating programme for new-look Literary Festival
The Guernsey Literary Festival is launching its 2021 programme, using a series of live streamed events for speakers from outside the island and live events for local writers and speakers.
The events begin next month and will build up to main events from 27th April – 15th May, but there will be events throughout the year, including with Ben Fogle in October. Full details of the programme is on the Festival website, guernseyliteraryfestival.com
Covid 19 travel regulations mean that in May, writers and speakers from outside the island would still have to self-isolate, so the Literary Festival will be live streaming them to a local audience, who will be able to ask questions at the end of each talk.
The main ticketed events (£10/£5) will be held at Les Cotils and because audience numbers will be more limited than at bigger venues, people will also be able to watch the full talks online free of charge. Other events will be held at the Guille Alles Library. Tickets went on sale to GLF members on Monday 29 March and will open to non members on Saturday 3rd April.
