Having attracted Harry Potter writer JK Rowling to Harrogate in 2014, it has been announced that the town’s leading arts charity has now secured an appearance by The Da Vinci Code’s Dan Brown.Tickets went on sale today for Harrogate International Festivals’ exclusive UK launch of Dan Brown’s, new thriller, Origin, in partnership with WHSmith.The visit to the Royal Hall in Harrogate by the American thriller writer on October 9 will be this superstar writer’s only UK public event.Victoria Ibbertson, literature festivals manager at Harrogate International Festivals, said: “We’re really excited to welcome Dan Brown to Harrogate. “The fact that he and his publishers, Penguin, have chosen to launch Origin with us is testimony to our festival’s reputation for positioning Harrogate as one of the country’s leading literary destinations.”Brown’s spellbinding new novel sees the return of Robert Langdon, Harvard professor of symbology and religious iconology, as he arrives at the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao to attend the unveiling of a discovery that “will change the face of science forever”.Three of his previous Robert Langdon novels have been adapted for the screen by Ron Howard, starring Tom Hanks.Tickets for Dan Brown’s appearance, which includes a copy of Origin in the ticket price, are available now at or on 01423 562 303.
