We are the Champions – Our Festival Launch

Friday 10th July

@NewarkBookFest Facebook Page

Tune in to watch our community launch with a twist for 2020!

Our theme was to celebrate live music over the past 10 decades from the jive to the twist and rock n roll, you can listen to all the tunes we would have performed in Spotify and we will be back in 2021 with the live version.

But for 2020 we chose a Queen song to commemorate Live Aid on 13 July 1985, 35 years ago.

Would you like to take part in our launch with a twist? You can sign up to be part of this before 22nd June and all you need is a phone at home! Drop us an email hello@newarkbookfestival.org.uk

Thanks to AJ’s Dance for our choreography!
