Newark Book Festival

Friday, 10th July 2020 :


Thanks to our funders, supporters, Friends and the Festival Board, Newark Book Festival will be going ahead in 2020 although with a big twist! The Festival will be re-created and split into five chapters that will take place between 10th July to 27th February 2021. The programme will continue to celebrate anniversaries and milestones such as 100 years of Agatha Christie. Chapter One will take place from 10th-12th July and will feature a virtual online Festival of our main author events, headliners, storytime and a workshop, in addition to hopefully hosting an in person small writing for wellbeing workshop with the Festival’s 2020 Writer in Residence Leanne Moden. Highlights include a panel discussing Bronte 200, historical fiction, gothic fiction and the fabulous author of The Burning Chambers Kate Mosse.
