A festival celebrating that deliciously named London doughnut around the capital will feature Will Self and the Inbetweeners writers.

Doughnut - The Outer London Festival will welcome writers, historians, architects and economists at the University of Greenwich for a festival celebrating life outside of central London.

Events include a discussion on the future for outer London, including the need for green space versus the need for housing, as well as live music, film, and an outer London market, featuring traders and food.

Also at the event on Saturday, September 5, Inbetweeners writers and producers Iain Morris and Damon Beesley will host a Q&A session and special screening of an episode.

Self - a patron of the festival - will take part in a keynote discussion with award- winning writer Hanif Kureishi as part of a main stage line-up.

He said: “Outer London is the crucible of new developments in both the metropolis’ built environment and its sense of itself. Conflicts over development, transport and social identity are all being played out around London’s periphery. Doughnut festival is a timely response to a vital yet neglected aspect of our world city.”
