The Flamstead Book Festival (Flamstead, Hertfordshire)– Books in the Belfry – ran for the first time in June 2014 and was judged by all to be a great success. It ran for the second time in June 2015, with the event featuring Jane Hawking a sell-out in advance. It has a fantastic line up for 2016 including a talk from the thrilling Renee Knight, a Writing Boot Camp Session and Story Telling for younger bibliomaniacs! There is a whole programme of events available from their website.
Come along to hear the author's discuss their books and maybe ask them a few questions, get your book signed, buy featured books from the Waterstones stand and also to enjoy the two best ingredients for a relaxing summer weekend - books and a pretty village surroundings!
The Flamstead Book Festival is run for the benefit of the to raise funds for restoration and conservation of the village church and its surroundings. Funds are urgently needed to repair and conserve the church and its surroundings, in particular the roof above the North aisle, which was recently stripped of its lead and the unique mediaeval wall paintings, second in Hertfordshire only to St Albans Abbey. The building and its grounds are used for concerts and other events, and now for the Book Festival. For 800 years it has been the centre of Flamstead's community but now it needs help in order to maintain it's vital role within the village.
