Out and About has secured a special rate for the first literary Festival in the UK to specifically give prominence to work by women.

The Primadonna Festival brings together writers, editors, readers, publishers, artists, thinkers, comedians, performers, musicians and foodies – as well as happy people of all ages and many backgrounds – to share experiences, explore new ideas and imagine new possibilities. It is a place of hope, inspiration, community and artistry in an intimate setting in the beautiful Suffolk countryside.

You can buy tickets for the weekend and there is a small fee if you want to camp (bringing your own tent and equipment) there will be showers WHERE TO STAY — PRIMADONNA (primadonnafestival.com)
