CORONA VIRUS UPDATE :

It is with much sadness that we have taken the decision to postpone our literature festival. Given current conditions and advice, we want to ensure that all our audiences, authors, volunteers and staff remain as healthy as possible and we feel it is our duty and responsibility to protect others by not proceeding with our events at this time.

We are currently investigating options for rescheduling events and ask that you bear with us in the meantime whilst we talk with different venues and authors. We are also in talks with our box office - run externally - and appreciate your patience whilst we finalise information for those who have purchased tickets for events due to take place at the end of March. We will keep you informed as soon as we have further information.

Thank you all for your continued support - as a charity we rely so much on income from our audiences and sponsors to keep running and hope that, however uncertain the future is at present, we can continue to bring high-quality, inspiring multi-arts experiences to the Midlands.

The Perfect Words 

ONLINE BOOKING FOR THIS EVENT HAS NOW CLOSED. TICKETS WILL BE AVAILABLE TO BOOK ON THE DOOR OF THE EVENT (30 MINUTES PRIOR TO START TIME, SUBJECT TO AVAILABILITY, CASH PURCHASES ONLY).

Round off the week and head into the Festival weekend with an evening that delves into the history of our most well known quotations, phrases and rhymes.

Authors Caroline Taggart and Diana Craig take us on a light-hearted journey through the quirks of the English language and provide us with the perfect words to draw upon for whatever situation we find ourselves in.

In All That Glisters Caroline Taggart presents some of the pithiest, wisest and most fascinating quotations we should all know, detailing where the quotation has come from and why it may be useful when searching for an elegant or informed line to illustrate a point, spice up conversation or impress one’s friends.

In Ring A Ring O’Roses, Diana Craig takes the reader on a journey into the weird and wonderful world of nursery rhymes. It delves beneath the surface of the verses to interpret their meaning and reveal their historical origins.
