In March the Festival Board decided that we would find a way to re-create our Festival so that we could continue to support authors and artists during this challenging time.
Using digital technology we have created a mainly virtual festival, but the experience and enjoyment will most certainly be real.
Events below are listed for 2020 and link through to further details and booking information.
You can also download the Newark Book Festival Programme to view offline at your leisure.
