With just two weeks to go till Books in the Castle returns to Newark for the second year, June and Sue will be chatting to festival organiser Paul Trickett on this Sunday’s show.

Throughout the day on both Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 July, the Castle Gardens and Undercroft will play host to a series of author talks and special events celebrating the world of books.

Admission to the Castle grounds is free and tickets for the author talks are available now at WH Smith in Newark or by contacting Paul (paultrickett@hotmail,com). All-day tickets for the Saturday can be purchased online here, priced £25 for admission to the seven crime-writing talks between 10.15am and 7pm.

Also on the show, Tina will be reporting live from her garden in Flintham, one of 12 in and around the village open to the public this coming Saturday and Sunday.
