Visit the Royal Society for a two-day festival celebrating science, literature and the arts!

The Royal Society's very first literary festival will celebrate the 350 years of our science book collection, as we bring together some of the best authors, scientists, poets, historians, and theatre practitioners to express, explore and enthuse about science and culture in all its forms.

Confirmed participants so far include John Banville, Marcus du Sautoy, Apostolos Doxiadis, Sian Ede, Sebastian Faulks, Lavinia Greenlaw, Sunetra Gupta, Richard Holmes, Michael Frayn, Paul Nurse, Tim Radford, Charlotte Sleigh, Ian Thomson and John Wright. We are also delighted to announce that Foyles will be providing the festival bookshop.
