The 2019 programme for Wrexham’s Carnival of Words has been announced by Wrexham County Borough Council, and it’s bigger and better than ever before.

Now in its fifth year the line-up includes stars such as The One Show’s resident scientist Marty Jopson, Former Government Minister Alan Johnson and the No 1 international bestselling author Amanda Prowse.

Literary fans will be excited to hear the hugely popular author of The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel Deborah Moggah, queen of crime writing Elly Griffiths, Alison Weir bestselling historical fiction author, The Reverend Peter Laws and bestselling author and historian Clare Mulley have all also been revealed as part of the line-up as well

Events will be held at venues across Wrexham between Saturday, April, 27 and Saturday, May, 4. Wrexham Carnival of Words has been a resounding success since it was first held in 2015, with an increasing number of events, which have proved popular with local people.

Shan Cooper, Libraries Lead said; “We are very excited about the programme that has been put together and I would like to encourage anyone who loves books and writing to come and join us during the week.

“There is definitely something for everyone.”

In addition, back by popular demand, Wrexham Library will host another Murder Mystery as part of the carnival, which is sure to be another sell-out, in which the public will put their sleuthing skills to the test and experience what it is like to investigate the most serious of crimes at our nail-biting Murder Mystery evening, play detective for the night and help to figure out the culprit.

Tickets prices vary but many events are free, you can buy them from Wrexham Library or online via the Wrexham Council website.
