It’s time for yet another jam-packed weekend of books and writing, ideas and inspiration, music, comedy, wellness experiences and more, in the rolling meadows of the Food Museum in Stowmarket. Join guests Kate Mosse with the Feminist Book Society on her gripping queer pirate story, The Ghost Ship, and an exclusive sneak peek of her next novel, The Map of Bones; Sinéad Gleeson as she explores folklore and the feminine with her haunting debut novel, Hagstone; legendary music PR Jane Savidge on Pulp, Britpop and How Fame Can Let You Down; Irenosen Okojie on her captivating new novel, Curandera; Ela Lee (Jaded) and Chimene Suleyman (The Chain) as they delve into their hot new releases, the murky world of gaslighting and taking back control; and Helen Lederer as she shares her journey through the wild world of comedy in Not That I’m Bitter

Or follow dedicated itineraries: workshops and up-close industry opportunities for writers; the best comedy, cabaret and music for music and performance fans; and a packed itinerary of books, storytelling, activities and festival experiences for kids and families all weekend long.
