The festival is organised around two central hubs at the Bodleian Library/Sheldonian Theatre and at Worcester College. A marquee between the Bodleian Library and the Sheldonian Theatre hosts a festival bookshop and a box office.

Speakers at this year’s festival include the Shakespearean actor Antony Sher, scientist Richard Dawkins, novelist Sebastian Barry, novelist and screenwriter Anthony Horowitz, veteran children’s writer Judith Kerr, biographer Claire Tomalin, Children’s Laureate Lauren Child, celebrity chef Rick Stein and former Home Secretary Alan Johnson.
