Theakstons Old Peculiar Writing Festival

On Thursday 19 March a large crowd gathered at Brown’s Courtrooms St Martin’s Lane to celebrate the London launch of the programme for the 13th Theakstons Old Preculiar Crime Writing Festival.

After an most entertaining speech by Simon Theakston on the similarities of a good mystery to Theakstons Old Peculiar, Anne Clevees, this years programme organiser gave us a brief overview of the wonderful schedule of events we could expect in this year’s programme.

With the wine flowing and tasty canapés the evening went with a swing. See photographs,  top left Alison Joseph current CWA Chair.

Centre in the picture is Brenda Blethyn who plays Vera in the television adaptation of Anne’s Vera series.

There was also a chance to sample Theakstons new IPA bitter, which my partner greatly enjoyed.
