Greenwich Book FestivalSqueeze co-founder Chris Difford returns to his Greenwich roots as one of the headline acts at this year's Greenwich Book Festival, taking place at various venues in and around Greenwich. Novelist and poet Blake Morrison, journalist and author Lucy Mangan, and journalist John Crace are also at the two-day event which takes place on Friday 15th and Saturday 16th June. There are literary events for all ages. Children can meet top CBeebies author, Olobob creator Leigh Hodgkinson, make comics with cartoonist Neill Cameron, attend a host of workshops with Fabi Santiago (Tiger in a Tutu) and Ged Adamson of Shark Dog! fame, enjoy Paddington storytelling and join the dots of history with Christopher Lloyd who wrote the best-selling history of the world, What on Earth Happened? This year's festival extends beyond Greenwich University's historic Old Royal Naval College campus to the streets, riverbanks, buildings and even Charlton Lido which form the backdrop to featured books. Visitors are invited to walk, swim and mudlark as they experience the environments that inspired the literature.

A London university spread over three sites, its 28,000 students are also housed and educated at Avery Hill, in an 86-acre park in Eltham, south-east London, and Medway, another campus of Edwardian redbrick buildings near Chatham's historic dockyard.
