The Ayot Literary Festival

The first Ayot Literary Festival was held over three days in June 2011 in the marquee on Ayot Green, establishing itself as the pre-eminent literary event in Hertfordshire.

The programme comprised an eclectic range of internationally best selling authors, including Alexander McCall Smith, Will Hutton, Prue Leith and Darren Shan. The idyllic village green location and a highly convenient position with easy access to London and the motorway network helped the event to attract thousands of festival goers from all over the country.

Festival organisers Barry and Gill Kemp, Nic and Geraldine Savage and Festival Director Fiona McIntosh were all delighted with the way everything went. It was a great weekend, with events for all tastes, ranging from pure light-hearted fun to the more serious and challenging, and festival goers relaxing in the sunshine with a glass of wine in between.
