About this event

After a few months of working through our festival programme and re-creating it into five chapters, we are pleased to announce Chapter One of the Book Festival programme for 2020, where we go virtual in July!

Between the 10-12th July we are delighted to welcome a range of fabulous authors including Kate Mosse, Jess Kidd and Frances Brody to your living room. Tickets are now available for purchasing, have a look through the programme and book away! We look forward to a weekend of online dancing, story time with Diddy Signers, adventures with Picklewitch and debates on crime through the ages, gothic and historical fiction, the Bronte 200 anniversaries and much more.

Thank you so much to all of our Friends, audiences, partners and funders, including Arts Council England who have supported us through this journey over the past few months.

The Festival Bookseller

Books are available for order and sale from our Festival bookseller, The Bookcase in Lowdham. Please do help us in supporting our local independent bookseller. You can find the Festival booklist on their website with details of special festival offers too!

Newark Book Festival celebrates and showcases the world of books through an exciting, engaging programme from author events to panels, crime fiction, contemporary, literary fiction and a children’s programme.

Taking place in beautiful venues across the town, the festival will fire your imaginations, challenge and inspire you and present the very best in literature and the arts..
