Talk Friday 2 June - Sunday 4 June 2017


The Frontline Club is pitching a big tent at the BYLINE FESTIVAL of Journalism, held in Pippingford Park in East Sussex on the weekend of 2-4th June. Come and join us!

Subtitled, ‘A Riot of Free Speech’, Byline is Britain’s first ever festival of journalism. There will be a mix of comedy, music, workshops, screenings, activism and debate. A gaggle of the great and the very-funny: John Cleese, Martin Bell, The Blow Monkeys, Luke Harding, Lenny Henry, Tom Holland, Hugh Grant, Jack Monroe and plenty of other people and bands you admire and love, all in one forest clearing. More details here.
