Burnham Market Book Festival is back, better than ever
12 September 2011
This year’s festival of books and ideas, organised by my fellow blogger Rosalind English, takes place once again from 14 – 16 October in the elegant market town of Burnham Market in North Norfolk, with a great line up of speakers, and subjects ranging from the Tudor Queens to the life of Leo Tolstoy.
Sparks may fly when former brigadier Allan Mallinson challenges historian David Edgerton about his revisionist view of Britain in WWII Britain’s War Machine, and butterflies flutter with Patrick Barkham’s heroic efforts to spot all British species of Papilio in one year. On Saturday evening TV architectural historian takes attendees behind the scenes of the English Country house.
