The Bloxham Festival of Faith and Literature

www.bloxhamfaithandliterature.co.uk

As a "literary festival with a theological slant", the Bloxham Festival of Faith & Literature celebrates the very best new fiction and non-fiction with a faith perspective.

Since the first festival in 2011 we have welcomed a wide range of speakers including Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy, the Reverend Mpho Tutu, novelist Michael Arditti and author Francis Spufford.

Our mission is to encourage a love of literature as it relates to faith, and to create a thoughtful and relaxing space in which to consider works of literature and their religious and moral themes. It's for anyone who is interested in the big questions of life.    Sarah Meyrick, Festival Director

 

Festival 2016: 'All the World's a Stage'

Friday 19 - Sunday 21 February 2016              Bloxham, Oxfordshire

Our theme for 2016 honours the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death. Speakers include former Bishop of Oxford John Pritchard, author Salley Vickers, Bishop Stephen Cottrell and international Shakespeare scholar Stanley Wells.
