Literary festival for London
Nobel laureate Wole Soyinka joins Hari Kunzru, Pat Barker, Blake Morrison, Helen Oyeyemi, Jacqueline Wilson, Lauren Child and a host of other stars for the South Bank Centre's inaugural London literary festival, due to begin on 29th June, reports the Guardian.
The acting head of literature at the South Bank Centre, Martin Colethorpe, claimed it as the first ever London literary festival, referring back to the Festival of Britain, held on the same site in 1951. The festival is part of a series of events to celebrate the re-opening of the centre after a £111m redevelopment of the 8.5-hectare (21-acre) site, £91m of which has been spent at the Royal Festival Hall.
