An Audience with Jill Halfpenny

When Jill Halfpenny was four, her father died. He went to play his weekly game of five-a-side football, had a heart attack and never came home. In 2017, in cruelly similar circumstances, Jill’s partner Matt went to a gym class, suffered a cardiac arrest and never came home.

These two tragic events frame Jill’s story in ‘Life Reimagined’, as she explores dealing with grief as a child and teenager in comparison to her later journey as a partner and mother.

Jill is best known for starring in Byker Grove, Eastenders, and most recently, The Long Shadow. Jill will be in conversation with local writer Françoise Harvey.

You can buy all of this years featured books from our official festival bookseller DRAKE the Bookshop.
