    Felixstowe Book Festival - 27 - 29 June 2019

    The Felixstowe Book Festival is now one of the most important events in Suffolk’s calendar and Jackamans Solicitors is proud to have been a co-sponsor since the beginning.  Now in its seventh year it is thriving, and continues to increase in the number and range of its events; broadening its appeal to individuals of virtually any age and reading taste.

    The Festival offers a varied literary programme which includes authors’ events in four Felixstowe venues; a “pop up” Festival on the seafront, at our historic Fort and Museum, and on the two rivers which border the town.  This year there will also be a special package of writing workshops - being promoted to writing groups nationally - to attract aspiring writers to the Festival.  These focuses will increase the Festival’s profile and encourage a range of audiences from a larger geographical area.  Last year more than 2,000 tickets were sold and this year the number is likely to increase.

    There is an exciting range of author events for both adults and children. The speakers include well-known and respected writers covering a wide range of genres and also debut novelists and those from writing groups.  To demonstrate the Festival’s diversity; authors include former politician Alan Johnson, Alison Weir (author of Anna of Kleve: Queen of Secrets) and Esther Freud (Festival Patron) and half-sister Annie Freud discussing Annie’s poetry.  Children’s events are incredibly diverse and include Hotel Flamingo Drawalong with Alex Milway, Sutton Hoo Roadshow, Operation Buried Treasure with Ally Sherrick and Calling Mission Control.

    Spoilt for choice - you will have the pick of at least three speaker events each hour from early Saturday morning until Sunday evening.  This format creates a warm and vibrant festival atmosphere.  If you haven’t attended Felixstowe Book Festival before – or even any Book Festival – do give this one a try!
