Bewdley Book Week - September 3rd to 9th 2017

A week of insight, readings and literary events

Bewdley Book Week 2017

Bewdley Book Week 2017 has lived up to expectations as being extra special.

It features no-fewer than four Sunday Times bestsellers plus a nationally acclaimed poet and a one-off evening with the creator of George Smiley, John le Carré.

Our remaining ‘marquee’ events in St George’s Hall start on Friday 8th September with a sold out Mums’ Night Out with the "Unmumsy Mum".

Author, blogger and mum of two Sarah Turner, known to millions as ‘The Unmumsy Mum’, has an evening of chat with Rachel New who is a Book Week favourite, having chaired our ‘tea and cake afternoons’ for the past two years. The £10.00 ticket price includes a glass of wine.

On the afternoon of Saturday 9th September, Rachel returns to moderate Tea and Cake with Milly Johnson and Cathy Bramley.

Both are Sunday Times bestselling novelists. The £7.00 ticket price includes tea and slice of home-made cake.

And our week of events ends with an evening with one of the country's best loved poets, Brian Patten.

Brian celebrates 50 Years of The Mersey Sound, Penguin Books’ innovative poetry anthology Brian shared with Roger McGough and Adrian Henri. He will read new and favourite poems and reflects on his career with Neville Farmer. Tickets for this event are £12.00 and will be available on the door.
