The magazine brings together stars from the world of television, radio and books
Radio Times has announced the line up for its inaugural festival, which will be held at Hampton Court Palace in September.
The programme includes talks from RTS award-winners Sir Bruce Forsyth, Melvyn Bragg and Peter Bowker, alongside masterclasses ranging from drawing with Horrid Henry illustrator Tony Ross to learning how to act on radio with The Archers’ Charles Collingwood (Brian Aldridge).
Ben Preston, editor of Radio Times, said: “You’ll hear the inside story about your favourite television and radio shows and come face-to-face with broadcasting’s most talented people and some of your favourite writers – and much, much more. We want people to come together, share their passions and enjoy a great day out.”
Other big names speaking at the event include Sir David Attenborough, who will give a sweeping tour of his six decades in broadcasting, Wolf Hall director Peter Kosminsky and Sex and the City creator Candace Bushnell.
The festival takes place from Thursday 24 September - Sunday 27 September. Further information can be found at RadioTimesFestival.com.
