Chris Patten is unfortunately unable to attend BuckLitFest for medical reasons. For all ticket holders, we hope you will still join us as we have arranged for political biographer and commentator, Sir Anthony Seldon to interview the speaker of the House of Commons, The Rt Hon John Bercow at 5.30 on Saturday instead.  This will be an entertaining, enlivening and thought provoking discussion. All pre-bought tickets are of course valid for this event.

The organising team would like to apologise for the change and we would also like to wish Lord Patten a speedy recovery.
