About this event
Women’s Prize LIVE is back!
This summer take part in the greatest celebration of women’s creativity at this unmissable day festival for booklovers and storytellers in London, brought to you by the Women’s Prize Trust.
For the first time, we are offering a day pass to an incredible line-up of events, including your favourite authors in conversation, inspiring talks, book clubs led by special guests, and workshops to spark your creativity.
Joining us on the day to share their love of books are phenomenal speakers including Anita Anand, Naomi Alderman, Ravinder Bhogal, Elizabeth Gilbert, Viv Groskop, Vick Hope, Nadiya Hussain, Louise Minchin, Kate Mosse, Anita Rani, Cathy Rentzenbrink, Alex Scott, Elif Shafak, and the six authors shortlisted for the 2023 Women’s Prize for Fiction – with more names and the full programme to be revealed!
Plus there will be a host of activities to get involved in throughout the day: get creative at drop-in workshops run by female makers, book a slot at 1-2-1 expert coaching sessions, meet your favourite authors at book-signing stations – and bask in the beautiful gardens with fellow booklovers and writers, all while enjoying delicious food and drink from our bars.
Round up your friends, book the day off, and start looking forward to an unforgettable day out this summer!
