Jonathan Slack, Chairman of Marlow Writers’ Society, the organisers of the event, said: “We’re thrilled to be launching ticket sales in good time for the event, and are expecting lots of interest, so we recommend early booking. Our schedule is packed with entertaining and inspiring performances, including all forms of the spoken word — prose, poetry, song and drama. There’s something for everyone!”
Well-known actor and local resident Tom Chambers will launch the Festival at 10.00 am in St Peter’s Church, with a brief opening ceremony followed by a Q& A session. The morning continues in multiple venues in central Marlow, with performances from the JAM Theatre, Marlow Players, authors Geoff Lambton and Bill Dunn, and singer Dave Dunbar. A packed schedule throughout the afternoon includes music, drama, interviews, recitals and a wide range of poetry.
Evening audiences will be entertained in St Peter’s Church by all-female four-part singing group Harmony Belles and choir Downley Descants, with their wonderful repertoires of specially chosen lyrical and emotional songs from the best films, musicals and the charts. The day will finish around 9.30 pm.
Family-friendly activities will be available in the afternoon in All Saint’s Church Hall (small hall).
An Adult Day Pass (10am – 5.30pm) is priced at £15.00 (concessions are available), while tickets for the evening events (6.30 – 9.30 pm) are priced at £12 for adults (concessions available).
