The festival dedicated to the best in sports writing featuring sports’ writers and personalities from the worlds of cricket, football, cycling, Formula One, rugby and tennis for four exhilarating days of interviews, discussions and book signings at Lord’s Cricket Ground.
Sunday 15th November 2015: our last day of this year’s London Sports Writing Festival begins at 2.00pm with The Cycling Podcast as we welcome Lionel Birnie, Daniel Friebe and Richard Moore back to Lord’s. We have another great day in store for sports fans with appearances also from Ed Caesar, Mike Brearley, Scyld Berry and Ed Smith. Tickets are still available priced £10 and can be bought online or on the door (cash and most cards accepted).
Over the course of the Festival we have welcomed a host of awesome talent including Raphael Honigstein, Ronald Reng, Amy Lawrence, Stuart Broad, Phil Tufnell, Mark Webber, Sid Lowe, Guillem Balague, Sarah Shephard, Anna Kessel, Lizzy Ammon, Gary Mabbutt, Terry Gibson, John Crace, Henry Winter, Ben Cohen, Michael Lynagh, John Cross, Paddy Barclay, David Millar, Ned Boulting and many more. Have a look at our twitter page @lswf15 for some great photos.
The LSWF is jointly hosted by David Luxton Associates and Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) and our media partner is the London Evening Standard. We have had phenomenal support this year from so many people including all of our magnificent speakers, their publishers, publicists and managers, and our wonderful audiences. We also thank everyone at MCC and Lord’s – Andrew Jeffery, Clare Skinner, Tracey Williams to name just three – along with the stewards, hospitality and Tavern staff, the AV desk and our man Greg. Our volunteers have been absolutely fabulous and we could not have done it without them. We salute Jane Beaton, our Head of Press and PR and our Man of the Match 2015 Award goes to Festival Co-Ordinator, Nick Walters. There are so many more people we should thank by name but we hope you know we are immensely grateful to each and everyone of you. Thank you.
