Foyles partners with Literary Dinners

Foyles is to partner with Literary Dinners to present “a unique series of intimate, pop-up literary dining experiences,” putting a fresh twist on a tradition it started over 80 years ago.

The partnership follows on from the tradition of the Foyles Literary Luncheon, the last of which took place in 2010. The programme will begin on Sunday 15th July opened by Londoners author Craig Taylor, with a ticket price of £30.

Miriam Robinson, Foyles head of marketing said: “There are few literary traditions as rich as the Foyles Literary Luncheons, and we see in Literary Dinners an innovative and dynamic way to evolve that model for our readers.”

Launched by 19-year-old Christina Foyle on 21st October 1930, the luncheons were founded in response to the desire of Foyles' customers to meet authors, which at the time was a privilege only available to very few in private salons.
