The Festival Director’s welcome

This is the seventeenth year of people gathering together from all over the world to celebrate the life and works of Graham Greene. It is also the seventeenth year of celebrating friendship among those who knew Greene personally or who have been influenced by his work in many media. Whether you are a seasoned Festival-goer or a first-time visitor you are welcome to join. This year’s programme is diverse and wide-ranging, with a number of fascinating talks and exciting events. I sincerely hope you will come along.

Tickets will be on sale at the door for all events other than the meals, but it would be preferable if you book in advance online from this website. Season Tickets are available for those who plan to attend all talks.

Dr Frances McCormack, Festival Director
