The Essex Book Festival is now done and dusted for another year and we hope that everyone who joined us had as much fun as we did.
With 100+ authors/artists/performers taking part in 65 events hosted by 35 venues across the county, it really was a marathon month.
Work is already underway for March 2016. Please let us know if you have any ideas about what or who you would like to see in the Festival programme next year. We can't promise anything but we'll do our best!
In the meantime, we'd really like to thank everyone who took part in this year's Festival. There are too many people to thank individually. However, it's fair to say that nothing would have been possible without our funders and partners, including Essex County Council, Southend Borough Council, University of Essex, Anglia Ruskin University, Polish Cultural Institute, The Minories, Essex Libraries, Southend Libraries, The Mercury Theatre, Essex Cultural Diversity Project and Arts Council England.
Keep in touch and see you soon
Ros Green (Director, Essex Book Festival)
