Follow Andrew Swift and Kirsten Elliott outside the walls of the bookshop, on a tour through Bath’s illustrious literary history. Over the centuries, a whole host of writers have either made the city their home or immortalised it in print, including Dickens, Betjeman, Coleridge and Georgette Heyer, as well as the ubiquitous Jane Austen. Though nowadays it may be difficult to imagine Shakespeare taking a dip in the hot springs, or even Mary Shelley composing Frankenstein in the Abbey Churchyard, Swift and Elliott bring life and humour to the wildest of stories.

We are very proud to be hosting this delightfully different event, that promises to be as fun and invigorating as it is informative.
