First organised in June 2008, CRIMEFEST is a convention for people who like to read an occasional crime novel as well as for die-hard fanatics. It has not only become one of the biggest crime fiction events in Europe, but is also one of the most popular dates in the international crime fiction calendar. The annual convention was featured as one of ‘the best crime writing festivals around the world’ in the Guardian and one of ‘the 50 Best Festivals’ in The Independent. CRIMEFEST draws top crime novelists, readers, editors, publishers and reviewers from around the world and gives delegates the opportunity to celebrate the genre in a friendly, informal and inclusive atmosphere.
2017 highlights include:
Interviews with Guest Authors
Presentations of the eDunnit, Last Laugh and Sounds of Crime Awards
In addition, there will be some forty author panels with more than a hundred participating authors, a crime writing workshop, a pitch-an-agent strand, and much more.
The Full CRIMEFEST Pass is currently £175. (It will incrementally rise to £195 in early 2017.) The full pass includes admission to all panels and a CRIMEFEST delegate bag with books and a programme. Day passes are also available. (Visit XE Currency Converter for approximate international prices)
We look forward to seeing you in 2017.
