We are delighted to announce that Candy Jar Book Festival is returning for 2015!

Following the success of the inaugural event last year, we will be re-launching the week-long book festival in the Cardiff City Centre between the 8th and 15th August.

The festival will once again take place in our book shed on the Hayes, which is situated in the centre of Cardiff (near House of Fraser). Events will additionally be taking place in nearby locations such as The Forbidden Planet, Rhydypennau, Cardiff Story Museum and Cardiff Central Library.

A wide range of events have been organised for your enjoyment, including book signings, author readings and literary focused discussions. All ages are welcome to attend, with events catering toward both younger and older audiences. Children can enjoy an enlightening discussion on space, join Jane Cohen in the ‘Wormiverse’ or talk time-travel with shortlisted author Anthony Ormond, whereas adults can alternatively marvel at the first-hand divulgences of a WWII veteran. Whovians will particularly delight in meeting Andy Frankham-Allen, author of the first book in the brand new Lethbridge-Stewart series and his compendium of Doctor Who assistants: Companions.

Avid readers and aspiring writers of all ages; we welcome you to come down and say hi. We look forward to seeing you!
