The Kardamyli Festival 2022

Friday 7th- Monday 10th October 2022

We are offering tickets to the second Kardamyli Festival in the Greek Peloponnese.

With just 200 attendees, this will be an unmissable chance to learn about all things Greek -history, myth and music- as well as discuss the issues preoccupying our world. You will do it in the company of some of our finest thinkers, including William Dalrymple, David Owen, Bettany Hughes, Peter Frankopan, Anne Applebaum, Radek Sikorski, Adam Nicolson, Artemis Cooper, Tom Holland and other Hellenophiles – in the spectacular beauty of Kardamyli in the Greek Peloponnese.

Your cast of speakers will entertain you only for the morning, leaving the afternoons free to explore the dramatic countryside of the Mani, sunbathe, swim or simply chat with your fellow-travellers. In the evenings we’ll enjoy live entertainment including a live debate, traditional Greek dancing and more.

More Information:

A ticket for the 4-day festival costs £600 and includes three morning lectures (9.30 am – 1.15 pm) and refreshments during the break. It will also include two evening events (6.30 pm – 7.30 pm) and a ticket to a drinks party on the Thursday night (6th) at The Leigh Fermor House to open the festival and a Saturday night gala dinner to include an entertaining speaker debate.

Two literary dinners in a Kardamyli taverna will be confirmed in May along with the full programme. They are not included and will need to be booked directly with the taverna. Details, prices and contact details for this will be put up on The Kardamyli Festival website in May along with the full programme.

Information about Kardamyli, including accommodation, tavernas, services and activities, can be found on the Kardamyli Festival website:

The ticket price also does not include flights or local travel. Tickets cannot be exchanged and will only be refunded in the event that the festival is cancelled due to Covid or any other reason.

Flights to Kalamata (one hour from Kardamyli) and Athens (three hours) can be booked via British Airways, EasyJet or Aegean.
