Hear from acclaimed authors in a fascinating series of talks from some of Britain’s best known historians and historical fiction writers – in 2019 with a Victorian theme.
2019’s Lincoln Book Festival will celebrate the life and legacy of Queen Victoria and the era she defined as the nation marks the bicentenary of her birth.
Queen Victoria was born on 24th May 1819 and inherited the throne at the age of 18, reigning until her death in 1901. This year marks the bicentenary of her birth and people across the UK will be reflecting on how the Victorian era changed Britain and its place in the world and still influences our society today, from the legacy of empire to impressions on popular culture.
Placing history at its heart, Lincoln Book Festival celebrates great history writing and historical fiction. The programme features talks from major authors, historians and public figures, alongside competitions, workshops and local history talks.
Alongside the range of author events there are workshops, school events, film screenings, food and drink, a showcase of creative writing in local schools and the announcement of winners of two short story competitions.
Most Lincoln Book Festival events take place at The Collection or Lincoln Drill Hall in the city’s cultural quarter. Tickets for author talks are usually £10 although some activities are free to attend.
