The Book Buzz Literary Festival ran for its third season from Saturday 15 February to Saturday 29 February 2020. The festival included lots of events and activities held in Bexley’s libraries and other venues all around the borough.

You can view the full programme of events and activities that were held.

We were thrilled to welcome 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 held some fascinating non-fiction talks and workshops some of which were held in some amazing places around the borough including Hall Place, The Exchange, Lesnes Abbey, Danson House and Crossness Engines Trust.

Highlights for children included Nick Arnold’s “Horrible Science Show”, 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 provided storytelling, drama workshops, theatre shows, robotics workshops, a mobile planetarium and comedy poetry so there really was something for everyone.
