The Rock’s first ever international literary festival was a resounding success.
An eclectic mix of authors, historians and literary critics
delighted audiences with a varied and absorbing programme of lectures that delved
into the most diverse range of cultural, literary and historical subjects.
The eight selected venues reverberated with excitement as audience participation,
book-signings and book sales of participating authors confirmed the Festival’s
successful birth and powerful eruption onto the European stage of literary festivals.
From the erudite and scholarly to the accessible and popular, the festival’s range of
content, efficient logistics and standards of hospitality impressed participants
who are experienced veterans from some of the most prestigious and well
established literary festivals in UK and the world.
Minister for Tourism, Public Transport, Commercial Affairs and the Port Neil Costa
MP, summed it all up at the end of three intense days of cultural activity, borrowing a
phrase from the Booker prize-winning novelist and poet Ben Okri regarding the
festival, to state “It was a triumph.”
