    Derby Book Festival's Book Swap: Opening Event with Sebastian Faulks

    Our Opening Event will feature internationally renowned author Sebastian Faulks, whose latest book, Where My Heart Used to Beat, returns to what has become a recurring theme in his novels: war and love. It is a tender portrait of a man and a century. Probably his best-loved novel, Birdsong, vividly depicted a British soldier’s experience on the frontline during the First World War

    Jane's Place Clothes Swap

    I love clothes swaps! I've been running and attending regular swaps for years and decided to host one at Jane's Place as part of Global Sharing Week.

    I've invited stylist, Jo Bunner from the 'Good Clothes Philosophy' along to provide valuable styling tips but more importantly to share her ethos of how to shop in a sustainable and ethical way (Jo stopped buying 'new clothes' 2 years ago and relies on charity shops, clothes swaps, vintage fairs, car boots etc...instead. A truly inspiring approach from a stylist! You can read more about Jo's 'eco fabulous' approach here

    No 38 The Park, 38 Evesham Road in Cheltenham, United Kingdom

    Supper With Petershan Nurseries

    After a visit to Petersham Nurseries you’ll feel as though you’ve been away from London but now you actually can escape to the country award-winning chef Damian Clisby and head gardener Thomas Broom host a one-off feast at Cheltenham’s No.38 The Park. The menu features homegrown and wild ingredients; slow-cooked shoulder of lamb with chickpeas, aubergine, cumin and basil and Petersham Prosecco, wild strawberry and rose jelly pudding. Almost certainly too pretty to eat.
