Harbour Books x Wealden Literary Festival

For the second year running, we are proud to have been invited to provide the bookshop at the Wealden Literary Festival which will be taking place 25th – 26th June, 2022. This special cultural event is hosted in the beautiful gardens of Boldshaves in the Weald of Kent and has played host to leading literary talent like Raynor Winn, Robert MacFarlane and Helen MacDonald since its inception in 2015. With a particular focus on nature, travel writing and memoir, Wealden is now well-established as an important event for authors inspired by and writing about the environment and the natural world.

This year we are delighted to be able to offer all Wealden Festival ticket holders an exclusive 10% discount on all titles in our bookshop, including books by festival authors. To take advantage of this special deal please place your orders through our website before Wednesday 22 June by 2pm. All orders placed before 2pm will be ready to collect from our bookshop during the festival.

“For so many of us, the impact of the pandemic and long periods spent indoors reminded us of what we miss when cut adrift from the natural world. We’re keen to nurture that connection to nature through our programme of speakers, workshops and dedicated series of activities for children.”

Andrew Willan, Founder

As a literary festival designed for families, Wealden also plays host to many artists, makers and lays on brilliant creative workshops for all ages over the weekend. And you can camp right there, amongst all that inspiration and creativity.

Do come and find us at the festival, we’ll be the ones organising all the author signings but just like last year we’ll bring a wide range of titles from our Whitstable shop for you to browse our pop up festival bookstore!
