Creative Arts East and Breckland District Council are very excited to be bringing you another Breckland Book Festival for March 2013.
We will have a month full of activity in each of the towns in the Breckland area including many popular authors, live performances, workshops and film screenings. Inspiration for many of the events has come from the Great Big Read Goes to the Movies.
“There’s a real buzz about this year’s Book Festival. I hope all who come enjoy themselves learn something new and go away laden with books and new ideas for reading, inspired by our terrific authors.
This year features a wide range of events including author talks and readings from the likes of Alison Moore, crime writers Elly Griffiths and Tom Benn and children’s authors Sheridan Winn and Tom Blofield. There will be live performances from Mad Dogs and Scary Little Girls, who bring literature to life through drama, song and music, creative writing workshops for adults, art workshops for children and a whole host of film screenings.
We are proud to support our local libraries and you will see many of the events are taking place in a library near you. Our thanks go to Creative Arts East and Norfolk County Council Library Services for their passion, enthusiasm and support which is truly reflected in this fantastic festival.
I hope that many of you will take advantage of this fantastic programme and that it will inspire you to get reading, writing and listening in 2013– and for many years to come”
