A Crime and Thriller Festival with a Difference

Capital Crime presents panels and events
that entertain and engage crime and thriller fans.

Capital Crime is one of the world’s largest celebrations of crime and thriller fiction. We invite the best crime and thriller creatives, writers we all love to read, filmmakers we all love to watch, and spend two days in London delivering a packed schedule of entertaining and thought-provoking events.

We know what counts in the best crime and thriller fiction – engaging characters, a believable storyline, gripping plots, with endings that leave you begging for more. And we know that you want to meet these amazing creatives too. So we’ve created this festival just for you. Meet the authors and filmmakers you love and discover new ones.

We set out to give crime and thriller fans a special way to experience our favourite creatives. Capital Crime is a festival like no other – offering an unprecedented level of access to some of the world’s best crime and thriller creatives and putting them together with people influenced by their work. We promise a fun, memorable experience at Capital Crime.

We look forward to seeing you in 2020.
