Newark Book Festival
Tallents Solicitors was delighted to be the sponsor of the Children’s and Young Person’s Programme in 2017; the inaugural event for the Newark Book Festival. Now in 2018, we are proud to confirm our sponsorship again of the Children’s Programme as the Newark Book Festival returns, bigger and better than ever.
Taking place across three days from the 13th to 15th July 2018, this year’s theme will be Landscapes in Literature with the festival celebrating local literary heritage, fictional worlds, and highlighting the importance of location in fiction and non-fiction writing. Building on the success of the first revamped event in 2017, which drew almost 2,500 people to Newark, the 2018 festival will be taking place across 11 venues throughout the town, including for the first time, Newark Palace Theatre and Carriages cafe.
This year’s event is set to have an even more impressive line up, with a themed marketplace full of literary inspired stalls and performances for the whole family to enjoy. The very popular family workshops are set to return, and the children’s programme, sponsored by Tallents Solicitors, will have a Once Upon a Land theme. It’s hoped that the event will prove even more popular with its new programme of events.
Jeremy Blatherwick from Tallents Solicitors which is sponsoring the children’s programme said: “Newark Book Festival was a wonderful event to be a part of last year. It proved to be extremely popular and it captured the town’s imagination, bringing thousands of people into Newark. It really is a celebration of all things literature and there’s something for everyone, young and old. We’re proud to be helping the festival build on its success to become even bigger and better for 2018.”
