Skulduggery in Stowmarket: Suffolk’s crime writers’ festival returns for a third year   


Stowmarket library is pleased to announce that it will be running the third ‘Skulduggery in Stowmarket’ crime festival during the last weekend in April.

Skulduggery in Stowmarket will take place at Stowmarket library over three days from 24 – 26 April, returning after its successful launch in 2018 and a well-received return in 2019.

More than 300 people attended talks at the library over the weekend of the festival in 2019. This year, the line-up includes Henry Brett, Louise Millar, Rebecca Tope and Simon Brett among others.

Ursula Scott, manager for Stowmarket Library, said:

“Last year’s festival was hugely successful with more than 250 people attending the various events and this year’s festival promises to be even bigger and better. We received great feedback from the event last year including “Brilliant – wish I had done both days”, “lovely atmosphere”, “exceptionally well run” and “sparkling!”.

The weekend starts on Friday 24th April with a live music event by local band Skiffuffle playing a mixture of skiffle, Americana, novelty and other songs from the 20’s to the 70’s. There will be a licensed bar and the ticket price includes a pizza supper.

On Saturday 25th April and Sunday 26th April, Stowmarket Library will play host to five authors on each day giving talks and Q&A sessions about their books and styles of writing. The authors on Saturday are Rebecca Tope, Harry Brett, Louise Millar, Jim Kelly and Rory Clements. Sunday’s authors are Michael Jecks, JM Hewitt, Ruth Dugdall, Laura Purcell and Simon Brett.

Tickets can be purchased to attend a single talk – all-day or weekend tickets are also available. To book, visit the Suffolk Libraries website.
