North Cornwall Book Festival

INfo from the Book Festival team:

As well as leading national and international writers of fiction such as Joanna Trollope, Anne Enright and Patrick Gale, North Cornwall Book Festival has a host of authors who have all recently published wonderful new works in various genres including biography, poetry and nature writing. The sea, appropriately for its location, features strongly in the programme.

The Festival Café will be open all day serving delicious deli-style light meals, wines and beers. There is a bar in the church for both concerts. On Saturday evening supper is available before India Electric Co take the stage.

A remarkable exhibition of lino prints and wood engravings, What a Relief! is on display throughout the festival, and a bookstall run by the Padstow Bookseller will complete your experience at the one-and-only North Cornwall Book Festival. For all further details and booking information go to or phone the box office on 07787 944935.

The readers and writers of tomorrow are not forgotten. As well as the two-day schools’ event (also open to individual children’s bookings), two leading figures of children’s fiction can be enjoyed during the weekend: Jill Murphy of Worst Witch fame (hold onto your broomsticks!) and Horrible Histories illustrator Martin Brown, who gives an action-packed event full of jokes, stories, live drawing and audience participation.
