Jarrold loves...dates for your 2018 diary


From celebrity book events and  fashion and beauty showcases, to a day at the Races and the Royal Norfolk Show, here are just some of the key events not to miss for the first six months of 2018.



An evening with Elly Griffiths

Thursday 8 February

Join us for the eagerly awaited launch of the latest crime novel from Elly Griffiths, The Dark Angel. The latest instalment in her Ruth Galloway series, the book is bound to be a hit. With the novels’ local settings, they tend to strike a chord with Norfolk readers, so we have two options for you to choose from for this book launch.

The first gives you entry to a VIP reception of Italian style nibbles and glass of prosecco in Benji’s plus the chance to meet Elly and have your book signed and dedicated. You will then join Elly in The Pantry where Elly will explain more about the book and take part in a Q and A.

The second is for the book launch in The Pantry with Q and A and the opportunity to get your copy of the book signed.

For both options you can purchase single or couples tickets.






Afternoon tea with Stephen Fry

Thursday 14 February

Join us for this exclusive event when Stephen will introduce his book Mythos and no doubt entertain us as well with some interesting anecdotes. The Greek myths have been a passion of Stephen's since he was eight years old. This is the book that he has been waiting to write, it is a brilliantly entertaining account of ribaldry and revelry, warfare and worship, triumphs and tragedies
