Wealden Literary Festival 2017
Wealden Literary Festival
Launched in 2016, Wealden Literary Festival is an annual celebration of place and nature through books, food, arts & crafts. Set in the enchanting gardens and woodland of Boldshaves Garden near Tenterden in Kent, this festival, which takes place on 15th and 16th July 2017, offers a unique opportunity for both children and adults to explore the magic of the natural world. The festival has been endorsed by a number of authors, including Robert Macfarlane who has described it as “a hugely hopeful and valuable new event.”
This year’s programme includes talks from authors such as Nicholas Crane (co-presenter of the BBC’s Coast series), award-winning garden writer Alys Fowler, Fiona Reynolds (former Director-General of the National Trust) and acclaimed naturalist, Mark Cocker as well as Clover Stroud, author of The Wild Other, and Anna Pavord. There will also be art exhibitions, craft displays and workshops, artisan foodstalls and woodland activities such as foraging and nature walks. The festival is free for children under 14.
