Our venues often prepare wonderful gourmet meals to accompany the author presentations, giving the festival events a rich cultural experience and we all know how entertaining talking, relaxing, food and drink can be.
This year we’re able to share the menu’s on offer for some of our events:
CELEBRATION DINNER AT THE KNICKERBOCKER
WITH PETER FITZSIMONS
The acclaimed French restaurant ‘Knickerbocker’ will kick off the event with a celebration of food and drink in a beautifully suited location for such a worldly topic and speaker. Knickerbocker has partnered with Grant Burge Wines to offer guests a complimentary glass of sparkling wine and the chance to win the lucky door prize.
