Lowdham at eleven
The programme for the eleventh Lowdham Book Festival in Nottinghamshire (15 June - 1 July) is now available online at http://www.lowdhambookfestival.co.uk/, though the box office is not in operation until Monday. Five Leaves jointly organises the Festival with The Bookcase in Lowdham. The Festival was meant to be quite slimmed down after the big tenth Festival, particularly as we did not attract Arts Council funding, but, y'know, 75 writers and an even longer Festival. It just happened. If you have never been before come on the 26th June - 26 events, all free, a children's programme, a large book fair and a cafe. And if you only have one evening free, come on June 21st to hear Mark Cocker on birds followed by quite a lot of bat stuff, or on Friday 25th when John Harvey, Jon McGregor and Berlie Doherty talk about what they read, rather than the books they have written, or on... You could also put your name down for our literary weekend in Paris. Email email@example.com with your address if you want a printed programme sent.
