The LSE's annual Space For Thought Literary Festival was established to celebrate the new academic building which was officially opened by the Queen back in 2008. Now in its sixth year, between the 24th February - 1st March, The London School of Economics and Political Science will be hosting a series of free lectures, discussions, screening, and children's events that focus on the theme of reflection.

LSE endeavours to understand the world around us by exploring the arts and social scientists. There will be a particular focus on World War One, reflecting on the events one hundred years on since it began.

Special guest speakers will include authors such as Melvyn Bragg , Michael Rosen , Maggie Gee , Sebastian Faulks , and Margaret MacMilan .

If you are interested in writing, then you might like to attend one of their creative writing workshops ; it covers subjects such as waiting for the magic moment, writing fiction based on real life experiences, and writing stories based on true events.

University isn't just for adults, there will be interactive storytelling for young children, including The Lion That Came to Lunch and The Snow Queen.

There's no need to take things seriously all the time, so on the 1st March, join a group of improv actors, who will be performing comedy by the seat of theirs throughout the day.
