My long series of events through June & July culminates in 'An Evening with Stephen Booth' at Spring Bank Arts in New Mills, Derbyshire, this Thursday (25th July). 

Spring Bank Arts has been created by restoring and converting the former St James' Church, and it's become a wonderful venue for all kinds of arts events. Thursday's event starts at 7pm, featuring a talk, question and answer session and book signing. Tickets are £5 and include a welcoming glass of Pimms and refreshments. 

There are several ways to book tickets for the evening. You can go along to the arts centre itself on Spring Bank (mornings only), or contact them at or on 01663 308202. You can reserve a place on their website, where you can also get a peek at the venue: 

Alternatively, you can get tickets at the local bookshop, High Street Books, at 6 High Street, New Mills, phone 07828 923170 or email: Tickets may also be available on the door.

I expect this to be my last event for a few weeks, so don't miss it!

But even when Crime Writing Month is over, there'll be plenty more events to come!
