Felixstowe Book Festival

Felixstowe Book Festival is going online for 2020

Felixstowe Book Festival has become one of the highlights of the East Anglian arts calendar.

The 2020 online festival is FREE for everyone to enjoy!

Festival director Meg Reid said: "The Festival is an opportunity to create something positive out of what has been a very frustrating year so far. It is a way of bringing people together and creating a sense of community and belonging even during a period of isolation".

The Felixstowe Book Festival Book Group took place online over the last weekend of June 2020.

ALL EVENTS ARE STILL ONLINE AND FREE TO VIEW. Visit www.felixstowbookfestival.co.uk for details.
