Literary lunches

The Oldie Literary Lunches have become a venerable institution on the London literary scene since they were first launched in 1996. Held monthly at Simpson's-in-the-Strand, the lunches feature three speakers who each address the audience for ten minutes after a three-course lunch.

2018 lunch dates at Simpson's: 6th February, 6th March, 10th April, 15th May, 5th June, 17th July, 18th September, 13th November and 10th December, plus Buxton Festival 8th July and more regional festivals to be announced.
