"This year, the Theakstons Old Peculier
Crime Writing Festival celebrates its tenth year. To mark the occasion,
the cream of international crime fiction will once again gather in
Harrogate to raise a glass of Theakstons’ finest to the biggest festival
in the country championing crime writing, the most popular literary
genre in the UK today.
Headlining the festival this summer are heavyweights Jo Nesbo, Harlan Coben, John Connolly, Kate Mosse, Peter Robinson, Peter James and Ian Rankin. Each year the festival is chaired by a different high-profile crime writer, and this year popular British author Mark Billingham, creator of D.I. Tom Thorne, takes the helm. Billingham
said: “In just ten years, the Theakstons Old Peculier Crime Writing
Festival in Harrogate has become the biggest and best of its kind in the
world and it’s an honour to be chairing the Programming Committee once
again. I’m confident that we’ve handpicked a programme this year that
will rival anything seen at the festival before. Big names? Of course.
But this festival has always been about introducing crime fiction lovers
to the very best of the newer talent on offer too, and we’ve got plenty
from all over the world. Whether you like your crime fiction cosy as
crumpets or dark as a bloodstain in the shadows, at this year’s festival
there will be something for everyone!”
