The annual crime fiction convention is for people who like to read an occasional crime novel as well as for die-hard fanatics. CrimeFest draws top crime novelists, readers, editors and publishers from around the world and gives delegates the opportunity to celebrate the genre in a friendly and inclusive atmosphere.

One of “the 50 best festivals” in the U.K. —The Independent
CrimeFest’s stated aim is to give all delegates the opportunity to celebrate the genre in a friendly, informal and inclusive atmosphere. Attendees are asked to respect commonsense rules for public behaviour, personal interaction, common courtesy and the rights of others. CrimeFest supports diversity and free speech, and all attendees are expected to be considerate of others. Comments and views expressed by interviewers, interviewees, moderators and panellists during CrimeFest are their own and do not necessarily reflect those of the organisers.
