Literary Festival: Julie Mayhew


For book lovers everywhere. Come and join us on Thursday 16th November 2017 for an evening with award-winning novelist and screenwriter Julie Mayhew for the next event in our Literary Festival.

The event is FREE OF CHARGE for both UCP students and members of the public to attend and will take place from 7pm to 8pm in the Lecture Theatre at University Centre Peterborough.

Julie Mayhew is an actress turned writer who still acts but mostly writes. She is an award-winning novelist, an award-nominated radio dramatist and has written short stories and stage plays to critical acclaim.  She is now writing for the screen with her debut short ‘Elsie: Prince of Denmark’ shoots in Peterborough, Julie’s hometown, with local young talent supporting a professional cast and crew.  Julie is the current recipient of an Arts Council England grant to write an original new play for Eastern Angles unearthing the lost stories of women from history, including Catherine of Aragon.  This follows her collaboration with Eastern Angles in 2016 on ‘The Fletton Railway Children’, a hugely well-received modern adaptation of E Nesbit’s classic story.

University Centre Peterborough run an established BA (Hons) English Literature degree from our campus in the heart of the city. We are dedicated to supporting literature and writing at local and national level as well as providing opportunities for our undergraduate students to assist with these events.
