North Cornwall Book Festival celebrates 10 years

The North Cornwall Book Festival will take place between 21st and 24th September 2023, welcoming back book lovers, writers and authors to St Endellion for a weekend of literature.

This year marks the tenth birthday of the North Cornwall Book Festival. Curated by internationally renowned author Patrick Gale, this boutique festival includes author events, concerts, workshops, an art exhibition, a local artisan market and the ever-popular pop-up café. As part of this year’s stellar lineup, the festival will be welcoming the queen of crime fiction Ann Cleeves, historian Tom Holland, and novelists Natalie Haynes and Max Porter.

Attendees will be able to take part in workshops over the weekend. These will include Emma Gunn on foraging, Tomiwa Owolade on writing about people of colour, a poetry workshop from Luke Wright, and sessions on how to break into a career in the arts. There will also be one-to-one Meet the Professionals sessions where attendees will receive invaluable feedback from writers, publishers and other creative industry professionals.
