Man Booker 50 Festival

2018 marked the 50th anniversary of the Booker Prize, which for half a century has recognised many of the defining novels of our times and continues to celebrate the finest fiction.

To mark the special year, the Booker Prize Foundation in collaboration with Southbank Centre presented a programme of literary debates, readings and masterclasses featuring authors from the prize’s history. Reflecting the extraordinary range and depth of the prize, the one-off literary festival brought together pairings and panels of past winners and other cultural luminaries as they discussed their books, the inspiration they have drawn from each other, and the changing world that their fiction reflects.
