Become a Festival Stallholder



Become a festival stallholder

Become a stallholder at Newark Book Festival and join the Literary Village amongst Newark's Royal Market. Applications open for 2024.

Newark Book Festival is a four-day literature festival – celebrating local, national and international literary talent, with author talks and panel events, debates and a whole host of family-fun activities and workshops.

As part of Newark Market, The Literary Village will be at the heart of the festival and will be brought alive by a diverse mix of activities and performances. On Sunday the festival will take over the marketplace to include a larger performance schedule and a whole village of literature-related market stalls.

The stalls are for people and businesses promoting or selling work connected to the literature sector. (Authors, writing groups, reading groups, publishers, booksellers, book illustrators, craft makers, book-themed cakes, heritage sites etc).

We welcome applications from those who wish to make their areas as exciting and interactive as they can!
Please Note: Saturday 13th July 2024 is SOLD OUT.
