Book Buzz 2020

The Book Buzz Literary Festival is back for its third season. It will run from Saturday 15 February to Saturday 29 February 2020 and will include lots of events and activities held in Bexley’s libraries and other venues all around the borough.

We are thrilled to be welcoming many authors including Elly Griffiths, Ben Aaronovitch, Andrew Cartmel, James Swallow, Alison Weir, Nick Barratt, Jacky Hyams, Christy Lefteri, Elaine Everest, Mark Billingham and Dorothy Koomson. We also have some fascinating non-fiction talks and workshops some of which are being held in some amazing places around the borough so look out for events at Hall Place, The Exchange, Lesnes Abbey, Danson House and Crossness Engines Trust.

Highlights for children include Nick Arnold’s “Horrible Science Show” which is back by popular demand, comic illustration workshops from Kev Sutherland, animal handling from the Wiggly Wild Show, visits from author Joseph Coelho and interactive code breaking from Bletchley Park’s Tom Briggs. We also have storytelling, drama workshops, theatre shows, robotics workshops, a mobile planetarium and comedy poetry so there is something for everyone.

The full programme will be available at from January onwards.

Tickets for most events will be free but will need to be booked in advance from
