Launching the retreat on 14th November, the hotel will hold a special evening with Joanne Harris. 

Renowned for her works, including Chocolat and the soon-to-be-released Honeycomb, Joanne will hold an exclusive talk as she shares her experiences of being a writer from the North, the local literary heroes who have inspired her, and how she continues to weave their influence into her work.

The evening will start at 6:30pm with a welcome drink and canapes as guests enjoy the timeless elegance juxtaposed against the contemporary luxury. Nestled within the historic city of York, this magnificent venue will serve as the perfect backdrop for our literary adventure.

Following the talk, there will be an engaging Q&A session where guests can ask Joanne Harris their burning questions about her writing process, her inspirations, and her literary journey.

Following this event, guests will be able to book from January through to April and they will be able to visit all of the finest literary hotspots with a exclusive tour as well as a dinner and an overnight stay at the hotel.
