In a first for the book festival, we present an evening of proper Cornish stand-up. Featuring Roche’s own superstar, Edward Rowe and his support acts, Anna Keirle and Cornwall Comedian of the Year 2022, Mimi.

Edward Rowe is an award-winning actor, writer, director and comedian (under alias ‘Kernow King), best known nationally for his performance in BAFTA-winning film Bait and locally as Kneehigh Theatre’s ‘Pasty Man’, the much-loved pasty-making superhero. He is also a Bard of the Cornish Gorsedd and appears in Strike, House of the Dragon, The Witcher and Enys Men.

Anna has a cheeky comedic storytelling style. Described as a bumpkin in her first ever review, she has, however, won the Weakest Link. A quick witted MC, Anna has performed stand-up locally and internationally, from festivals and clubs to prestigious events.

 Bodmin-based comedian, Mimi, was shocked to win Cornwall Comedian of the Year 2022 on her third ever gig. She is a high energy performer, super scatty and armed with a ukulele to accompany her sweet but sour observations. 

Before this event we will be hosting a pop up street food cafe, so you can grab a bite to eat and a drink.

Novelist, Tiffany Murray, in conversation with legendary publisher, Lennie Goodings, discussing her new memoir My Family and Other Rock Stars.

My Family and Other Rock Stars is Tiffany Murray's characteristically original story of growing up in and around the legendary Rockfield Studios on the Welsh borders - a 1970s rural idyll of dogs and Cordon Bleu cookery. This is the story of a childhood where the chances of bumping into Freddie Mercury playing the piano, a group of Hell's Angels turning up to record for Lemmy, or even the hope of David Bowie appearing, were as normal as hopscotch and homework.

Not only does a mastery of the form allow you to produce exciting, memorable short pieces, it can also help to craft rousing introductions, vignettes, and significant moments of characterization.

This lively workshop will include an informal lecture on the form, readings and discussions of exemplary flash pieces, generative prompts and an opportunity to produce and share work.

Petroc Trelawny (North Cornwall Book Festival 2024)

Petroc Trelawny (North Cornwall Book Festival 2024)
Festival Marquee
Saturday 28 September, 2.30pm 
£10


Petroc Trewlawny will be in conversation with Patrick Gale discussing his new book, Trelawny’s Cornwall.

When a stranger challenged Petroc Trelawny on the authenticity of his ancestry, it inspired him to return to the lands of his boyhood to see if he could trace his bloodline to the Trelawny of history and analyse his Cornishness in the process.

Trelawny’s Cornwall is a deeply felt exploration of Cornwall’s past, present and future in which Petroc seeks the even stranger truths behind local legends. Holding a finger up to the winds of change and conjuring marvellously vivid figures from the inexhaustible depths of his memory, Petroc tells the story of a loving family full of mysteries and a landscape still redolent of ‘Cornish otherness’.

Poetry of Secrets Workshop with Seán Hewitt (North Cornwall Book Festival 2024)

Poetry of Secrets Workshop with Seán Hewitt (North Cornwall Book Festival 2024)
Stone Barn
Saturday 28 September, 2.30pm - 5.30pm
£30 


Every poem has a secret. Something underneath the language, something we deliberately bury, or some truth that only emerges when we write. But how do we make poems that contain secrets? How do we add depth and complexity to our writing? And why should we bother?

In this workshop, Seàn Hewitt, superb poet and literature professor at Trinity College Dublin, will show how to make use of your secrets - writing, cutting, deleting and rearranging to make poems that are like intricate vessels for hidden things.

Seán Hewitt’s debut collection Tongues of Fire saw him shortlisted for The Sunday Times Young Writer of the Year Award. He will be reading from his new collection, Rapture’s Road on the Saturday morning at this year’s festival.

Festival Marquee
Saturday 28 September, 4pm

Generous queen of the Dublin literary scene, Anne Enright won the Man Booker in 2007 with her fourth novel The Gathering and Irish Novel of the Year in 2015 with The Green Road. Anne is a mistress of painfully honest comedy, delineating the ambiguities and shifting alliances of family life like no other. 

Shortlisted for this year’s Women’s Prize, The Wren, The Wren is a devastating, brutally funny portrayal of the damage and aftershocks inflicted on three generations of women when a poet walks out on his dying wife to become a national treasure.

Samantha Harvey (North Cornwall Book Festival 2024)
Festival Marquee
Sunday 29 September, 9.45am
£10


Betty Trask Prize-winner, Samantha Harvey, will be in conversation with journalist and broadcaster, Rosie Goldsmith, discussing her latest novel Orbital.

Even without the deft maths behind its construction, Orbital is as far-reaching as it is svelte. By a narrative sleight of hand, Samantha gathers into amazingly few pages the thoughts of six international astronauts orbiting the earth in a space station. Their earthly lives are threaded through their experiences of sixteen sunrises and sunsets, while the distant marks of our precarious civilization far below come to seem impossibly fragile. As profound as it is poetic, Orbital is the perfect novel for people who think they’ve outgrown fiction.

After studying garden design, she joined the Eden Project and worked there for 22 years in many different roles, such as plant propagator, guide, florist, house plant expert and Seasonal Displays Supervisor.

For the last 16 years Emma has run foraging walks throughout Cornwall in places such as St. Michael’s Mount, Eden Project, the Lost Gardens of Heligan, Philleigh Way Cookery School, the Potager and Enys Gardens. She has also given foraging masterclasses and talks at universities and a TED talk on “A Forager’s guide to surviving an apocalypse!”.

David R Abram (North Cornwall Book Festival 2024)

David R Abram (North Cornwall Book Festival 2024)
Festival Marquee
Sunday 29 September, 11am
£10


Writer-photographer, David R Abram, has spent over a decade exploring prehistoric monuments from the air.

Collected in David’s acclaimed Aerial Atlas of Ancient Britain, his images are by turns hauntingly beautiful and revelatory. He shows how tombs, stone circles and burial mounds created thousands of years ago were, in effect, a form of ritual art using landscape as both its material and subject to inspire a sense of awe. If you’ve heard David speak before you’ll know his talks yield as much entertainment as they do archaeological insight, and we’re greatly looking forward to seeing what wonders he will be unveiling for us.

Sathnam Sanghera (North Cornwall Book Festival 2024)

Sathnam Sanghera (North Cornwall Book Festival 2024)
Festival Marquee
Sunday 29 September, 2pm
£10


Award-winning author and journalist, Sathnam Sanghera, will be in conversation with journalist and broadcaster, Rosie Goldsmith, discussing Empireworld - the follow-up to his bestseller Empireland.

The British empire's influence upon the quarter of the planet it occupied, and its gravitational influence upon the world outside it, has been profound: from the spread of Christianity to nearly 1 in 3 driving on the left side of the road, and even shaping the origins of international law. Yet Britain's idea of its imperial history and the world's experience of it differ greatly. In Empireworld, Sathnam Sanghera extends his examination of British imperial legacies beyond Britain. Travelling the globe to trace its international legacies, from Barbados and Mauritius to India and Nigeria and beyond, Sanghera demonstrates just how deeply British imperialism is baked into our world. And why it's time Britain was finally honest with itself about empire.

£10-£18 | Free for accompanied under 16s


Reg Meuross’s belief that folk songs provide a rapid and accessible route into history and its current relevance stood him in good stead when it came to tackling the history of the transatlantic slave trade in story and song. He unearthed both incredible tales and uncomfortable truths – now brought fully to life with this stunning song cycle.

Featuring the sparkling playing of kora master Suntou Susso alongside narration on the historical background to each song, Stolen From God was previewed during 2022’s Black History Month. With vocals from all three musicians, alongside incredible instrumentation, it has received a tremendous reception at shows across the country.
