As the central London venue celebrates its 180th anniversary, The London Library will host the first of its annual Lit Fest event virtually on 1-3 May 2021.

The London Library is planning to reopen again to members in April, in line with the government’s roadmap outlining the easing of coronavirus restrictions which stipulates that libraries will be included in the next step on 12 April 2021.

While preparing for live events to properly resume, the Library is meanwhile hosting a virtual Lit Fest in May, some of which will be hosted from inside the building and live streamed to remote attendees. Going forward, the festival will be an annual event. The event will include a series of sessions across three days, including talks from Sir Tom Stoppard, Salman Rushdie, Sarah Waters and many more interesting names from the literary world.
