Each year, Norfolk’s county town hosts Noirwich, a deadly festival of crime writing.

Over four days in September, a collaboration between Dead Good Books (Penguin Random House’s crime community), the University of East Anglia and Writers’ Centre Norwich packs in eight sinister events.

Noirwich Crime Writing Festival celebrates the sharpest noir and crime writing over four days of author events, writing masterclasses and a very bloody brunch, in Norwich, UNESCO City of Literature. In previous years. highlights have included Lee Child, Andy McNab (pictured) and Peter Robinson.

The East has a rich history of crime writing, as explored in our previous 365 post, Crime Queens of the East.

If you think it’d be criminal to miss the festival, take a look at their official website and book tickets here.
