Midsummer Madness at Cressing Temple Barns

Essex Book Festival presents Midsummer Madness at Cressing Temple Barns, as part of the Summer of Culture 2022

Everyone needs a dose of magic in their lives. We’ve got lashings of it at Cressing Temple Barns this Midsummer Weekend…

Join Essex Book Festival and partners for what will be a magical day of author events (for the young and the young at heart), dragons, fairies, storytelling, live music and theatre, den-building and a mud-kitchen.

Pack a picnic, and enjoy a free day out in the enchanting grounds of the 13th century Knights Templar Barns.

Please note, some activities are ticketed, for full details of the day and to book your talks and workshops visit Essex Book Festival here.
