Breaking News from St Hilda's Crime

Dear Friends,

I am sad to announce that College events are now cancelled up to September. It’s a disappointment not to be celebrating another Crime Fiction Weekend with you all, but safety remains paramount. All ticket bookings will be refunded automatically, but for accommodation refunds please email Sarah Brett in the Conference Office ( ) We ask for your patience during this process as College staff are working remotely.

In true St Hilda's spirit, however, we carry on!

We are delighted to announce that we are working hard to ensure our virtual doors are wide open with live broadcasts, Q&As, lectures, entertainment, and a packed Crime Fiction Festival.

15 August

‘All Our Yesterdays’: historical crime fiction

Details will soon follow for a stellar virtual event with live sessions, Q&As,
 lectures, competitions, reading room, virtual goodie bags, and, of course,
the Whodunnit.
We hope will be able to provide an event as near to the content and atmosphere of the ‘real' thing.
Participating authors already confirmed include:
Val McDermid, Mick Herron, Sarah Hilary, Jill Dawson, Tom Wood, Mary Paulson Ellis, Anna Mazzola, Andrew Wilson, Sara Sheridan, Vassem Khan,
and Andrew Taylor.
(In association with Blackwell’s Bookshop)
As well as our e-newsletters and social media channels, the Crime Fiction Weekend page will be regularly updated with news and content.
So stay at home and watch this space.

Do contact me directly with any questions or 01865 276867 and follow us on twitter @hildascrime

Best wishes from the committee:
Triona Adams, Val McDermid, Mick Herron, Jean Harker, Alison Joseph,
Jake Kerridge and Sarah Hilary
