This year, VisitEngland is celebrating England’s literary heroes. In 1877 Jarrold & Sons (Norwich) published a story by local writer Anna Sewell. The story, told from the perspective of a horse, went on to become a 50 million bestseller: Black Beauty.
Jarrolds no longer publish books, they do however have a wonderful department store. To celebrate the 140th anniversary of the publication of Black Beauty by Jarrold & Sons dive into Black Beauty themed events in the Jarrolds book department with a questions & answers children’s competition and browse the choice of different editions of Black Beauty on sale. Plus in the Arts & Craft department there’ll be colouring/drawing competitions.
In the Deli treat yourself to a Woodforde’s Black Beauty beer, exclusive to Jarrolds. Or enjoy a Black Beauty Afternoon Tea during August featuring a special Victoria Sandwich in Benjis in-store restaurant.
