The Theakston Old Peculier Crime Writing Festival is back this July!

We are so looking forward to producing a live event here in Harrogate at our home The Old Swan Hotel with a programme that packs a punch from this year's Programming Chair Ian Rankin.

From the announcement of the most coveted Award in Crime Fiction with the Theakston Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year right through to our finale event with the author of the fastest selling adult crime debut in recorded history Richard Osman, the programme is crammed full of Special Guests, panels and entertainment celebrating fantastic crime fiction right at the crime writing industry’s unofficial AGM.

Early Special Guest announcements for this summer include Ann Cleeves, Mark Billingham, Elly Griffiths, Mick Herron, Clare Mackintosh and CL Taylor whilst our not to miss panels include our very own fastest selling event every year with Val McDermid’s inimitable New Blood, alongside Who Killed The Police Procedural, What Really is Christie’s Enduring Allure, or pick your winner for and choose your very own Top of the Cops.

Weekend Break Packages to Harrogate are available now, so call the Festival Office on 01423 562303.

We cannot wait to welcome you back to the Home of Crime Fiction this summer from the 22nd to the 25th of July.
