Star names from broadcasting, literature, politics and comedy will bowl into Bewdley this autumn for Bewdley Festival and a pre-fest literary day.
Tickets are already being snapped up for nationally acclaimed celebrity turns by broadcaster Jeremy Vine, former Labour minister Alan Johnson, musician Roland Gift, poet Simon Armitage and comedian James Acaster, all appearing at Bewdley Festival in October.
Now the organisers have created a special pre-festival Literary Day on September 29th, featuring readings and interviews from popular writer and broadcaster Stuart Maconie, author Gill Paul and local historian Fen Flack.
Stuart Maconie, the radio DJ and television presenter, writer, journalist, and critic, will talk about his new work tracing his 300 mile walk retracing the famous workers’ Jarrow Crusade of 1936.
Tickets are available for all events on-line from www.bewdleyfestival.org.uk
