Good afternoon Gentle Folk and Lady Women.We have news of something new for the 2011 London Word Festival.

Today sees the launch of the Magic-E Ticket, an all new Willy Wonka style special ticket thing that allows you and a friend to attend TWO events at the forthcoming London Word Festival with a special twist.


Buy the ticket now, and when the programme is announced in February, you select two shows from the programme you would like to attend. At ONE of these shows, you and your amigo will be furnished with a unique (and surprising) VIP experience, Word Festival style. Like Cheers, but without Ted Danson.

As a special ticket holder, you’ll receive exclusive early announcement of the full programme, allowing you to select your events and book your tickets ahead of Joe Public and General O’Nsale.

All orders will receive a unique Magic-E Ticket, sent to you from London World Festival HQ.

Tickets cost £60 and can be purchased here.
