Hampstead & Highgate Literary FestivalHosted by JW3 for the first time, the Hampstead and Highgate Literary Festival gives book lovers the chance to hear talks by well known authors. This year's line up includes Jay Rayner, Iain Sinclair and Diana Athill who discusses her latest memoir with Marina Benjamin, author of 'The Middlepause'. As well as talks, readings, performances, workshops and discussions, there's The Travelling BookBox Show exhibition in the foyer and The MegaPhone Project - where giant cardboard phone boxes are dotted around the building: pick up the phone to hear the poetry.

 

About JW3

JW3 is a Jewish arts, culture and community centre with a kosher restaurant, cafe and bar overlooking Finchley Road in northwest London. Opened in 2013, and 10 years in the making, it is the brainchild of Vivien Duffield, whose Clore Duffield Foundation provided the lion's share of the £50 million it took to realise the project.
