About this trip

Day trip to the Cheltenham Festival of Literature, where contemporary British authors give talks on their work. Speakers seen by the class in recent years have included Ian McEwan, Jeanette Winterson, Philip Pullman, Alain DeBotton and Marina Warner. (Alternatively, a visit to Bristol or London to see plays by a modern British playwright: recently, Harold Pinter's The Birthday Party and Tom Stoppard's Arcadia.)
