The Oldie Literary Lunches at Simpson’s-in-the-Strand have become an institution on the London literary scene for the past four years.
Now reaching out into the shires, the speakers will stimulate lively discussion and debate at Cholmondeley Castle. After a delicious three course lunch plus wine, three household names will regale the audience with anecdotes, wit and insider information.
