The sixth annual ‘Holly Holy Day author event’ takes place at Nantwich Methodist Church, Hospital Street, Nantwich on Friday 25th January 2019. Doors open at 6.15pm for a 7pm start.
The event is organised by the Nantwich Book Shop & Coffee Lounge.
This year the event features three authors – SJ MacLean, writer of the Damien Seeker novels; Mike Arnold, creator of the swashbuckling ‘Civil War chronicles’; and Charles Singleton, series editor of ‘Century of the Soldier 1618-1721’.
Tickets = £10 which includes a pie supper and £2.50 off the purchase of a book.
The author event takes place on the evening before the annual ‘Holly Holy Day’, when hundreds of re-enactors will descend on Nantwich to commemorate the battle that took place in 1644, marking the end of the siege of the town during the English Civil War, between the Parliamentarians (Roundheads) and the Royalists (Cavaliers) loyal to Charles I.
Various displays and parades will culminate in a large battle on Mill Island. (For more info, see: www.battleofnantwich.org)
Steve Lawson of Nantwich Book Shop & Coffee Lounge said: “We are really excited to be returning to the Methodist church for another iteration of the Holly Holy Day author interviews.”
