Fowey Festival of Arts and Literature will be held between May 6- 13
Celebrating our 21st Festival, this year we have a wide range of events to suit all tastes. From bestselling author Michael Morpurgo; musician and composer Sir Karl Jenkins; former war correspondent and politician Martin Bell, OBE and BBC broadcasting veteran Robin Lustig, to debut authors, book launches, panel discussions, workshops and concerts. There is also an array of du Maurier based talks and discussions, sponsored by the Jamaica Inn. We are delighted to be screening the UK Premier of the Arte film – Daphne du Maurier: In the Footsteps of Rebecca. New for this year is Gardeners Question Time, with experts from the Duchy of Cornwall Nursery. We also welcome back to the Festival, Roger Ryman, Master Brewer for St Austell Brewery.
The Festival Art Trail is bigger and better than before and this year we have launched the Secret Gardens of Fowey. Our Kids Lit programme, taking place in local schools, has grown this year, engaging a new generation to enjoy literature and art.
The Royal Fowey Yacht Club will once again be home to The Festival Cafe, Box Office and Book Shop, managed by Waterstones.
