Celebrate the Summer Solstice with a day of panels, discussions and workshops celebrating renowned novelist and Cheshire local Alan Garner; one of the most significant and interesting writers of our generation.

A long-time resident of Alderley Edge, his work is inspired by its history, drawing on its rooted archaeology and its connections to the larger universe through Jodrell Bank Observatory and the Square Kilometre Array.

In this, his 90th year, a handpicked cohort of specialists from the realms of archaeology, physics and literature will gather at this key site to discuss how Garner's fiction has inspired them, and explore how time and place are re-imagined in his classic novels.

Join us and dive into the boundless imagination of one of the UK's most prolific contemporary storytellers as academics, authors and artists come together in celebration of Alan Garner – book tickets today!
