Our annual Derby Reads event celebrates the launch of the fifth Derby Book Festival programme and we will launch our 50 word Flash Fiction writing competition. The Festival Box Office at QUAD also opens. 


Based on the traditional Victorian Penny Readings popularised by Charles Dickens, the evening offers a selection of taster readings from books which will be featured in this year’s Festival.
