Felixstowe Book Festival: Operation Buried Treasure with Ally Sherrick: for ages 8+

Join award-winning author Ally Sherrick on a trip through time to discover the places and events that inspired her World War II, Suffolk-set adventure, The Buried Crown.

Inspired by the discovery of the Anglo-Saxon ship burial and all its priceless treasures near Woodbridge 80 years ago, The Buried Crown is the story of young wartime evacuee hero George Penny, Spud the dog, and German-Jewish refugee Kitty Regenbogen’s mission to find and protect an ancient treasure.

The session offers lots of participation, including the chance for you to help Ally create the start of a brand new treasure story, and ask questions.

Accompanying adults go free but do require a ticket.

You can also learn all about Sutton Hoo before this event.
