Literary Arts in the Heart of London
"What a fantastic crowd... it's great that people can come together and share their love of books" Sir Nicholas Hytner
Queen’s Park is a hidden, family-friendly gem in North West London centred around a 30 acre park surrounded by beautiful Victorian homes. We are the only London book festival to be held solely in a public park and the area boasts a wonderful literary history as a home to authors, artists, poets and actors for generations.
We look forward to welcoming you back in June 2021, when we shall bring some of the most celebrated authors from across the UK to Queen’s Park. Over the coming months, we will be publishing videos, podcasts and photos of some of the highlights of our festival so far.
The festival is only in its second year so still retains the blessed atmosphere of a garden fete. We really are in a park. The ground is sun-warmed. Parakeets dash screaming from tree to tree. And writers sign their books in a bandstand… this is an oasis of sanity
