Stowmarket's Museum of East Anglian Life is to host a three-day literary festival featuring one of the stars of Emmy-nominated Netflix hit Bridgerton at the end of the month.

Actor, director and writer Adjoa Andoh, who plays Lady Danbury in Bridgerton, will be at the Primadonna Festival, which is at the museum from July 30-August 1.

The festival is billed as the first literary festival in the UK to give prominence to work by women and working class, disabled and BIPOC (black, indigenous and people of colour) writers of all genders.
