Gibraltar Issued Stamps on International Literary Festival

The first Gibraltar International Literary Festival will take place from 25th to 27th October 2013. The Festival, which will form part of our annual calendar of cultural events, will bring together a number of world-renowned writers who will take part in debates, discussions, interviews and talks on a variety of subjects.\"gibraltar

The announcement follows discussions with the organisers of The Sunday Times Oxford Literary Festival and The Blenheim Palace Literary Festival at Woodstock, who have been contracted as special advisers to the Gibraltar Festival. An agreement was entered into with the advisers during a recent visit by the Hon Neil Costa, Minister for Tourism, Public Transport and the Port, to the Festival at Woodstock.

There, the Minister also met with authors Lord (Paddy) Ashdown, John Julius Norwich and Paul Preston and cookery writers Madhur Jaffrey and Ken Hom. All have indicated their interest in being part of the Gibraltar Festival. Local authors will also be invited to participate.
