Blake Lapthorn appointed official lawyers to The Sunday
Times Oxford Literary Festival 2011
Blake Lapthorn is pleased to announce
that we have been appointed as the official lawyers to the 2011
Sunday Times Oxford Literary Festival.
The Festival, which is sponsored by
The Sunday Times and the BBC, will take place from
Saturday 2 April to Sunday 10 April 2011 at Christ Church, Corpus
Christi, and Merton College in Oxford.
Over 350 writers will flock to the
City to discuss affairs literary, political, historical,
environmental and culinary for the eight-day
Festival. In 2010, 540 speakers took
part in 300 events, with ticket sales breaking all records. Oxford
boasted a galaxy of literary
luminaries, including Jung Chang,
Douglas Hurd, Philip Pullman, Sir Roy Strong, Joanna Trollope,
Robert Winston, Richard E Grant, Patti Smith, Dave Eggers, Ruth
Rendell, Shirley Williams, Penelope Lively, Colin Dexter, Rose
Tremain, Blake Morrison, P D James and D J Taylor.
Visitors will be able to book to join
guided literary walks, lunches and dinner parties with prominent
authors. Since 2008, a creative writing course has also formed part
of the programme.
The 2011 programme has been announced,
so to keep up with what’s going on, please visit the
Festival website. As official lawyers to the event, we
also have access to a limited number of reduced priced tickets. If
you would like to know more, please get in touch with your usual
contact at Blake Lapthorn to register your interest.
It promises to be a great week!
