Newark Book Festival returns – virtually!

Newark Book Festival, the annual literature festival that attracts more than 5,000 visitors each year to Newark, is set to return for a fourth year in a row with a virtual programme of events.

Taking place from 10th–12th July, headline authors, including Sophie Hannah, Jess Kidd and Kate Mosse, will take part in a series of events that celebrate creativity and anniversaries over the past 100 years.

This July it will offer a variety of author events, workshops and panel discussions, which explore history, crime fiction and storytelling for everyone in the family. People can expect to see authors such as Emily Brand, Lucy Powrie, Julie Summers and Giles Kristian to name a few.

The series of events in July will form Chapter 1 of the festival with more planned events to come in Chapters 2-5, taking place from September 2020 to February 2021, including a dedicated children’s festival day in early 2021.

To view the full programme and buy tickets for the events, visit the festival website, where you can browse or download a digital brochure.
