Welcome

Welcome to Newark Book Festival, a literature festival situated in the historic market town of Newark-On-Trent, Nottinghamshire.

 Newark Book Festival celebrates and showcases the world of books through an exciting, engaging programme from author events to panels, crime fiction, contemporary, literary fiction and a children’s programme. Taking place in beautiful venues across the town, the festival will fire your imaginations, challenge and inspire you and present the very best in literature and the arts.

The dates for 2019 are 12-14th July and we will be exploring the theme of Home and Away – from travel, Around the World in 80 Books to a celebration of all things home and Nottinghamshire.

Full details of the programme will be revealed in Spring 2019. Visit our social media to keep an eye on all the news!
