Lowdham Book Festival – June 2019

Jane Streeter writes: Hello again – and thanks so much to everyone who has attended the opening events of this year’s special festival!

We are off to a flying start – with Miranda Seymour and Byron on fine form last night, a fantastic Booklover’s Walk around Nottingham this morning and an inspirational session with Adam Penford, Artistic Director of Nottingham Playhouse, this afternoon.

Lots more to come in this month packed with wonderful authors – tomorrow we are really looking forward to welcoming back Karen Maitland with her medieval murders and mysteries. Karen is a brilliant speaker – there are still tickets left for this event at 2pm on Tuesday 4th June in Lowdham Methodist Chapel so do come along for what will definitely be a mesmerising afternoon.

And then on Wednesday 5th June I really urge you to come along to Southwell Library for a crime-filled evening with C J Tudor and Sarah Ward. If you haven’t read their novels let us be the ones to introduce you……

I will stay in touch as the festival progresses – please see below for The Festival At A Glance!  Full details are on The Bookcase website so please take a look – www.thebookcase.co.uk – click on Events and the Lowdham Book Festival.

Booking as always either over the counter at The Bookcase, 50 Main Street, Lowdham – or on our Box Office line 0115 966 3219.
