Add to Planner


Hear from acclaimed authors at The Collection in a fascinating series of talks promising revolutionary thinking from some of Britain's best known historians and historical fiction writers.

This year's festival explores the theme of 'revolution', taking as its inspiration the centenary of the Representation of the People Act 1918 which first gave some British women the right to vote.

From the political upheavals of Post-war Britain to the medical advances that emerged from the horrors of the battlefield, the idealism of the swinging sixties to the turmoil of the final days of the Tudor dynasty, a line-up of high profile guest authors will share their perspectives on the forces that have shaped profound societal changes in Britain and beyond down the centuries. 

Lincoln Book Festival places history at its heart, bringing some of Britain's best-loved novelists, historians, biographers, broadcasters, academics and public figures to the historic cathedral city of Lincoln for a week-long literary festival devoted to the best history writing and historical fiction.

Alongside headline author events there are free writers' workshops, competitions, schools activities and local history tours and talks. 

Most events are hosted at The Collection in the city's Cultural Quarter, or the iconic Lincoln Drill Hall theatre.

The full programme is published in early summer 2018. Check back soon for updates or follow on social media for the latest announcements.
