Hampstead and Highgate Literary Festival 2017

Thursday 14 - Monday 18 September

The Hampstead & Highgate Literary Festival returns to JW3 for its ninth year.

Full Festival Line-up to be announced soon. 

Thursday 14 Sepember
A Celebration of Leonard Cohen
We open the festival with a tribute to one of Hampstead’s most famous one-time residents, novelist, poet and one of the greatest songwriters to ever grace the planet, Leonard Cohen. Admitting to influences as wide ranging as Hebrew prayer and Federico Garcia Lorca, Cohen himself has, in turn, inspired generations of artists. Salman Rushdie once said of his work, “If I could write like that, I would.”
