2024 Summer School Programme

Our 75th Anniversary Diamond Jubilee Celebrations

We are delighted to share our Diamond Jubilee 75th Writers’ Summer School with you and have lots of different ways to let the party linger during the week in August. Do come and join us. 

  • On arrival at the School, you will receive some goodies in your delegates' welcome pack. 

  • You will also receive a special edition commemorative programme.

  • ​The Main Conference Hall will have memorabilia around the perimeter for you to browse throughout the week, such as famous guest speakers and tutors, and past successes. 

  • Or put your own take on the theme. To give a nod to 007, James Bond is a British icon and a well-loved spy character by the fabulous author, Ian Fleming.We have a “Diamonds are Forever” fancy dress themed disco on Wednesday. Why not? After all, if you choose

Thursday - celebration day!

•    There will be a cutting of the celebration cake before dinner, gifted to the School by our hosts, The Hayes Conference Centre. Thank you to The Hayes! We have a special guest to cut the cake.

•    We’ll raise a glass of bubbles to the School before enjoying a wonderful gala dinner. Dressing up is optional. Laughter is a tonic. 

•    Tonight we share an evening of celebration and entertainment before we say farewell for another year.
