Royalty and sportsmen at Literary Festival
Published 12/07/14



PRINCESS Michael of Kent is to appear at this year’s Henley Literary Festival.

The Princess, who was in the royal box for Sunday’s Wimbledon final, will be interviewed about her books on European royalty and her own life as well as answer audience questions.

Other new names announced this week include cricket legend Geoffrey Boycott, actor Timothy Spall, One Day author David Nicholls and former Home Secretary Douglas Hurd.

Boycott will talk about his forthcoming autobiography, Blandings star Spall will talk about his journey around Britain’s coast on a Dutch barge with his wife Shane and Nicholls will discuss Us, his long-awaited follow-up to One Day, which sold five million copies. Lord Hurd will reflect on his career under Margaret Thatcher and John Major as well as on that of Benjamin Disraeli.

Festival favourite Rachel Johnson returns, this time in tandem with her father Stanley. Food-lovers can also see Great British Bake-Off winner John Whaite and fashionista sisters Jasmine and Melissa Hemsley in action.

Comedians Francesca Martinez and Katy Wix, star of Not Going Out, will both be appearing, as will novelists Lisa Jewell and Sandra Howard.

The festival will take places from September 29 to October 5. Tickets go on sale to Friends on Tuesday and on general sale on July 28. For more information, visit henleyliteraryfestival.co.uk
