Event Summary

The 'Books by The Beach' is festival back to Scarborough to help authors meet their readers.
The visiting writers offer a wealth of knowledge and subjects to share with our eager audiences. The world of fashion is explored through a curator’s eyes, the Brontë sisters turn super sleuths and top journalists guide us through the last decade.
Bestselling novelists bring us tender tales of families and friendships.
The BBC’s Security Correspondent turns his hand to thriller writing, and a top broadcaster has a brush with art history in his debut novel.
A celebration of healthy eating sits alongside the importance of mental well being. A TV vet celebrates all creatures great & small and ancient Egypt offers up ‘Secrets from the Coffin’...
