First organised in June 2008, CRIMEFEST has not only become one of the biggest crime fiction events in Europe, but 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 an informal atmosphere.
2014 Highlights include:
Interviews with the featured Guest Authors and Toastmaster
the eDunnit, Goldsboro Last Laugh and Sounds of Crime Award presentations
In addition, there will be some fifty author panels with more than a hundred participating authors, crime writing workshops, a pitch-an-agent strand, and much more.
The Full CRIMEFEST Pass is currently £150. The full pass includes attendance to all panels, a CRIMEFEST delegate bag with books and a programme.
