There are almost 25 “Meet the author events” spread out across Felixstowe between 26th and 30th June. There is something for everyone, no matter what age you are.

So why not book your tickets today, because it’s going to be a sell out.

Supporting Cultural, sports events and Charity in Suffolk

Billie Box are proud to be sponsors of the Felixstowe Book Festival, helping to promote literacy and community engagement.

Jane (owner of Billie Box) & Clare (Jane’s sister) grew up in their parent’s newsagents in Felixstowe and supporting local organisations has been a key part of Jane’s business ethos. 

Billie Box supports many local initiatives and cultural events. Some of the organisations Billie Box have and are supporting are as follows:

Home Start in Suffolk charity, St. Elizabeth hospice, Felixstowe Ferry Sailing Club, Suffolk Sound Radio station and the Felixstowe Book Festival to name a few.

Jane feels that this aligns Billie Box business values. It builds trust by giving back to the community

A Celebration of Literature in Felixstowe

The Felixstowe Book Festival has a unique intimate and welcoming atmosphere. Many visitors have a fun packed long weekend with listening to their favourite and newly found authors along with eating great food and walking along the prom past the beautifully coloured beach huts. The Spa gardens are also a great spot to have a picnic looking out to sea or even at the beautiful flowers in the gardens. Some even go for a bracing swim.

At the book festival events you have the chance to meet the authors and get your book signed. There is a mix of genres eg. fiction, poetry, non fiction and childrens events. Some of the areas covered are history, art, politics, economics, the environment and much more.

The main venue is the stunningly beautiful Harvest House that dates back to Edwardian times. The building is now mostly private apartments but the ground floor rooms are excellent for ‘meet the author’ events. You can even have a light lunch/snack at the events and sit outside looking out to the North sea. Such a great setting.
