With over 70 sessions at the Radio Times Festival (an event celebrating books, radio, and TV), it is the place to be if you want to meet some of your favorite stars and writers from Doctor Who, Wolf Hall, Grantchester, Call the Midwife, and of course one of Silver Petticoat Review’s favorites: the romantic period drama Poldark.

The First Radio Times Festival takes place on September 24th-27th on The Green at Hampton Court Palace (outside of London). With plenty of events to choose from, one event is ready to make a huge splash at the festival: “The Making of Poldark.”

Poldark has entered many of our hearts this past year and will continue to do so in the future. From the gorgeous atmospheric shots of Cornwall, spot-on period detail, fascinating characters (particularly the Byronic Ross Poldark), to the love story between Ross and Demelza, what’s not to love? And if given the chance, who wouldn’t want to get to see the cast and writers up close and personal?

On Sunday, September 27, 2015, you have a chance to do just that and it’s time to book your tickets now! According to the festival information, attendees will:

“Get the inside story of the BBC series from executive producers Karen Thrussell, Damien Timmer and Debbie Horsfield, the writer responsible for turning Winston Graham’s novels into sparkling scripts. Leading members of the cast will also attend (to be announced). Joining them will be Andrew Graham, who will be on hand to talk about his father’s writing, including the book Poldark’s Cornwall, which is about the other star of the show — the beautiful county of Cornwall itself.”

While the exact cast members haven’t been announced just yet (so no we don’t know if Aidan Turner is attending or not), “The Making of Poldark” will certainly be a fascinating hour for fans of the hit show. So, if you are one of the lucky ones able to attend, make sure to book your tickets straight away. Come and learn about all the other events as well!

Further details of various sessions, “The Making of Poldark,” and tickets can be found on the website radiotimesfestival.com.

Later, Autumn studied English and Creative Writing (continuing her love for classic literature and everything old-fashioned) and graduated with an MA in Children’s Literature and an MS in Library & Information Science from Simmons College.
