Creative Folkestone have announced the return of the Folkestone Book Festival: The Shape of Things to Come. Between Friday 4 June – Sunday 13 June the Book Festival will present ideas, debate and conversation through a range of digital and in-person talks and events.
The festival continues to take its inspiration from the ideas and thoughts of H.G. Wells, born in Kent and a Sandgate resident for thirteen years. Writers, artists and thinkers will explore the possible futures of all sorts of issues, including race relations, the environment, technology, food, pandemics and Britain, Russia, Europe and the US.
The first list of speakers and events have been announced including David Lammy, Laura Spinney, Isabella Tree and more. Plus, an extra special immersive event that invites you to retrace Samuel Beckett’s footsteps through Folkestone in 1961. The full programme will be announced and tickets for live and online events will be on sale on 15 April.
