THE ST ENDELLION CAMPUS
Our main venue is the lovely Main Marquee – the majority of author talks take place here.
This year our Aiden Hicks exhibition, some talks and the evening performances will take place in magical St Endellion Church.
Workshops are held in the Stone Barn.
The Café and exhibition are in St Endellion Hall.
The Padstow Bookseller in bookshop Marquee provides a range of titles by the guest authors. As well as hosting signing sessions throughout the festival.
The Festival Café is open from 09:30 to 17:00 on Saturday 24th September and Sunday 25th September, serving delicious light meals, tea, coffee, cakes, wines and beers.
The concert bar is open in the marquee on Friday night and in the Church on Saturday night from 18:45.
A light pre-concert supper for £15 (including your choice of accompanying salads and a glass of wine) is available on Saturday evening from 18:30 . Please note that this needs to be booked in advance. Click here to book.
This year, The Festival Market will take place in the Church carpark. Alongside the Padstow Bookseller, there will be stalls from a range of local companies and charities where you can browse between events, drink coffee and eat our lovely café food. Stalls will include the North Coast Collective, Wadebridge Beekeepers Association, Rock Gin and Bodmin Nurseries.
Following from their success last year, Literature Works will be offering a day of one-on-one advice surgeries for emerging writers wanting help with all aspects of managing their careers (marketing, publicity and agents etc). These will be happening in our new micro venue, the Festival Camper Van, on Saturday 24th September. As these sessions are likely to fill up quickly, Literature Works will be compiling a waiting list so that the disappointed can be invited back on another time. Click here to book.
On Sunday, the Festival Camper Van will be used by Ella Berthoud to run Bibliotherapy sessions. Bibliotherapy is the art of prescribing fiction to cure life’s ills. Click here to book.
