The Literature Village and The Teenage Market come to Southwell

A pop-up Literature Village and Teenage Market will set up camp in the Palace Gardens at Southwell Minster on Saturday 13 August, from 10am to 4pm. There’ll also be live music too!

The Literature Village, part of  Newark BookFestival, connects local people with local authors, giving you the opportunity to meet authors from across the Newark area, talk to them about their work and maybe find a new book along the way! Experience the magic of stories brought to life by the people who wrote them, find new genres, support local work, get tips and tricks and nab yourself a signed copy. Accessible and enjoyable, for the whole family, whatever the weather!

For further information on the Book Festival and Literature Village, please contact Sara Bullimore (Artistic Director) at

The Teenage Market gives young people a free platform to showcase their creative talents. It’s all about supporting the next generation of market traders and bringing an influx of energy, vibrancy and diversity to towns across the UK. Our events are the perfect opportunity for markets to connect with their town’s population of young people, by providing a platform for them to be entrepreneurial, trial new business ideas and sell creative products.
