Thank you to everyone who took part in the first London Sports Writing Festival at Lord’s.  We enjoyed a wonderful four days of author events and the support for the Festival far exceeded our expectations.  If you were not able to attend, here’s what you missed!  Keep an eye out for news on next year’s event via Twitter and this website.

With support from MCC at Lord’s, the London Evening Standard, and a huge number of publishers, writers and celebrity guests, the LSWF is set to become a regular fixture on the literary festival calendar every October.  This was our very first year and was a huge success, popular for everyone interested in sport or sports writing.
