The Fifth Estate
The Next Big Thing
Our fabulous double bills are back – bringing you three big nights of international writers, presented back-to-back.
From genre-bending fiction bestsellers to young adult authors with cult followings, and non-fiction superstars who’ll change the way you view the world … we’ve got a little something for everyone.
You can cherry-pick your favourite authors and book individual events, or make a night of it and see two authors at once. It’s up to you.
