Welcome to our 5th literary festival at St.Peter and St.Mary church in Fishbourne. Following last year’s successful festival –

” A very enjoyable and well run day.  Look forward to next year!”

“Excellent – varied + informative + fun”

“Second visit (last year – loved it)”

“I thought the talks were excellent and loved the variety”

we have decided to expand over two days. Both days will run 9.30am to 4.30pm and are packed full of interesting speakers.  Each day there will be talks given by well-known authors who will end with a question and answer section. There will still be a chance to pick up some second-hand books at our all day sale. Refreshments will be served throughout the day including a ploughman’s lunch between 12.30-2.30pm.We are delighted to have Kate Mosse as our Festival patron and opening speaker.

“Kate’s adaptation of her book, “The Taxidermist’s Daughter” which is set in and around Fishbourne Church, has just been announced as part of the 2020 Chichester Festival Theatre season”

‘As a Chi girl born and bred, and one who grew up in Fishbourne, I am delighted to be opening this 5th Fishbourne Loves Books weekend.  I’ve been a regular supporter of the festival since the beginning and it’s a particular pleasure for me to meet readers & celebrate writing back on my proper home turf!’

We have a packed weekend full of excellent talks from the following authors. Kate Mosse, Paul Kerensa, John Burns, Claire Fuller, Phil Hewitt, Nicci French, Olivia Fane, Miles Leeson, William Shaw and Deborah Moggach. The authors will be signing their latest book after their talk.
