Netley Literary Festival Sunday Book Launches

  • Southampton
  • St Edward's Church Hall, Netley
  • 10:30am Sunday 22 Oct 2017
  • A host of writers and historians will be delivering talks and launching their latest books on Sunday the 22nd of October, as part of the final day of the Netley Abbey Literary Festival.

    The day's events start off at St Edward's Church at 10:30am, with a literary take on the church's usual Sunday service. Attendees will then gather outside the church at 11:30am for a literary guided walk that will explore Netley's links to famous detectives, lost poets and medieval monks.

    At 2pm in the church hall, English Countryside Travel Guide Writer Anne-Marie Edwards will be launching her latest book, Jane Austen's England - A Walker's Guide, Which serves not only as a novel, but also a practical guide to walking in the footsteps of Jane Austen.

    Lastly, at 3pm, Festival Director Matt Beames will give a presentation about his latest work, medieval fantasy graphic novel Blood & Valour, which re-imagines the story of Hampshire's legendary hero, the knight Sir Bevis, who some say still haunts Netley Abbey in search of his fabled sword, Mortglay.

    The Sunday event will also feature a pop-up festival bookshop and tea at St Edwards Church Hall from 4pm to 5pm.

    The day's events form part of the Netley Literary Festival, which takes place in a number of venues across Netley from the 16th to the 22nd of October.

    Netley Literary Festival is a Heritage Lottery Fund supported project, and is curated by the Berry Theatre.
