Oxford Literary Festival announces The Telegraph as new media part

Today, Wednesday 7 February, the Oxford Literary Festival – the world’s meeting place for writers and readers - announces a new media partnership with The Telegraph.

The partnership will bring added value to Telegraph readers and to festival audiences with special offers and exclusive interviews with this year’s festival line-up through editorial content in print, online and through social channels. The partnership will also see some of the newspaper’s journalists bring their expertise to interview authors on stage.

The 27th Oxford Literary Festival, which opens on Saturday 16 March, welcomes some of the world’s greatest thinkers, writers and public figures including two Nobel Prize winners – Professor Sir Paul Nurse and Professor Sir Venki Ramakrishnan; UK and international novelists – Paul Lynch, Ali Smith, Javier Cercas, Ann Cleeves, Nathan Hill and Bianca Bellová; from politics – Lord William Hague and Sir Chris Bryant, and public figures including Sharron Davies and Dr Amir Khan – with a series of debates and panels on the crucial matters of the day.

Chris Evans, Editor at The Telegraph, said: “We are very pleased to be partnering with the Oxford Literary Festival this year and are looking forward to working with their team to promote the exceptional programme of global writers and thinkers to our subscribers.”

Festival Director Sally Dunsmore said: “The festival has always provided a platform for intellectual curiosity, dialogue and debate. We are thrilled to announce The Telegraph as our new media partner to support our vision and cannot wait to welcome their readers to Oxford to immerse themselves in this year’s festival.

"We look forward to celebrating this year’s packed programme of 400 speakers from over 35 countries with a national and worldwide audience.”

The Oxford Literary Festival runs from Saturday 16 March to Sunday 24 March. 

Over nine days, the programme of events will be staged in some of the most beautiful and historic buildings in Europe, some of which are rarely open to the public.

Tickets for the festival are now on sale on this website.
