The weekend kicks off on the 24th with an evening of Brazilian music to get us into the Festival mood, brought to us by our friends at FlipSide Festival.

Fiction highlights include appearances by Orange Prize-winning author Rose Tremain, and Deborah Moggach whose novel These Foolish Things was made into the hit movie The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel.

Bestselling historian Juliet Barker joins us to mark the bicentenary year of Charlotte Brontë’s birth.  And to mark the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death we have a very special event at Landguard Fort: Sea Change by sound artist Lily Hunter Green.

Make sure you check out our selection of events for children and teens… amongst them we have 2015 Carnegie medal winner Tanya Landman, comic book master classes and a Roald Dahl celebration.

All this and more in the beautiful seaside town of Felixstowe…!
