The Jersey Festival of Words team are grateful for the support of main sponsors Highvern, and look forward to working closely with them as this year's festival progresses.
'We are delighted to be sponsoring this much-loved festival on its return to our local events calendar,' said Highvern Chief Executive Martin Hall. 'With such a diverse programme, the event promises to appeal to islanders of all ages and backgrounds and we are very excited to plan out how Highvern as a team can engage with the books and authors being showcased. Hopefully with our support we can encourage more people to visit this year’s festival to celebrate the power of both literature and words.'
In addition, Highvern are funding local poetry group La Poèt'tie's first anthology, which will be launched at this year's Festival of Words in September at a special event at Catel Fort.
