In memory of the late author, screenwriter and academic, the Malcolm Bradbury Trust, is a registered charity seeking to advance and promote the literary arts through educational initiatives.




Malcolm Bradbury


The Trust

The trust is currently led by a board of trustees comprising of seven professional members. Our trustees have experience and knowledge in fields spanning from education, literature, publishing, film & television, law and social enterprise. We are also pleased to welcome one of Malcolm’s early students, now a critically acclaimed writer, to our team.

The trust and family have a long-standing relationship with the University of East Anglia. It was here that, in the 1970s, Malcolm Bradbury and follow author friend Angus Wilson, founded the world-renowned School of Creative Writing and Literature at the University. The school has been characterised by success, with numerous acclaimed authors and academics having passed through its doors – from Ian McEwan and Kazuo Ishiguro, to John Boyne and Louise Doughty (now an MBT Trustee).
