The International Anthony Burgess Foundation encourages and supports public and scholarly interest in all aspects of the life and work of Anthony Burgess. Based in Manchester, England, we have an extensive library, archive and study centre containing Burgess’s books, music and papers. We also have a performance venue where we present new work by writers, artists and musicians.

Established in 2003 by Liana Burgess (1929-2007), and directed by Dr Alan Roughley between 2003 and 2010, the Burgess Foundation is an entirely independent charity that welcomes all individuals and institutions interested in Burgess’s work.

The Estate of Anthony Burgess is represented by David Higham Associates. All enquiries regarding permissions, books, poetry, theatre, film, television or journalism rights should be directed to or 020 7434 5900. All enquiries regarding music rights should be directed to
