Book Festival gets off to an explosive start…


Last Thursday saw the start of this year’s Guildford Book Festival with many of Britain’s finest authors and celebrities making an apperance at venues across Guildford over the next ten days.

This year’s line up is no exception with a diverse range of authors giving talks on subject matters as diverse as gardening, cooking to poisioning, Georgian prostitution and the Goons!  Guest authors include Novelists, Peter James, Barabara Erskine, Andrew Taylor and Katie Fforde; Historians Michael Wood and Dan Cruikshank, actors Steven Berkoff, Ron Moody and Maureen Lipman on their Autobiographies; Grand Designs Presenter Kevin McCloud; Celebrity / Comedy anecdotes from Jenny Eclair, Arthur Smith and Arabella Weir, as well as a whole host of other authors, poets, biographers, historians and writers. 

The Pelican Post is proud to be supporting the event this year and hopefully looks forward to further developing the partnership next year and possibly organising  supporting Pelican Post ‘author’ events in local schools in the area.
