Great line-up of authors at the Hexham Book Festival

There is a brilliant line-up of authors heading to this year’s Hexham Book Festival (26th April-6th May), which promises to be the best yet. Authors confirmed to be attending include Sarah Winman, Kate Mosse, Simon Mayo, Evan Davis, Judy Murray, Jeremy Vine, Jenni Murray, David Starkey, Rachel Joyce, Harriet Harman and many, many more. This year’s Festival will have a particular focus on the strides women have made in the last hundred years to mark the centenary of women’s suffrage, with Dr Helen Pankhurt, the great-granddaughter of Emmeline Pankhurst, also attending. The Hexham Book Festival is always a fantastic event, benefitting the local economy with more than 5000 people visiting Hexham during the Festival. I would certainly encourage you to find out more about this year’s Festival- with such a great line-up, there really is something for everyone.
