Newark Book Festival all set for a festive edition
Newark Book Festival will be back for festive fun on Saturday, December 11 and Sunday, December 12.
There will be four events across the weekend, including a free street theatre with Rudolph and Franky and a literature corner at Sunday’s Evening Christmas Market.
The mini-festival will open on Saturday morning with a family event with award-winning illustrator Chris Mould.
Chris will be drawing illustrations and telling the audience more about his career.
Festival Friends will also be treating visitors to readings from A Boy Called Christmas by Newark author Matt Haig.
On Sunday morning, fans of gothic spooky stories can hear writer Alison Littlewood talk about her new winter tale, Mistletoe and later in the day you are invited to A Very Victorian Christmas with Mildred Freeman Lady Historian who will guide you through a Victorian Christmas complete with carol singing and mince pies.
Newark Book Festival artistic director Sara Bullimore said: “We are excited to be bringing some Christmas cheer to the town and expanding our festival, from children’s gifts, to carol singing.”
