Covewae Island

created by Richard Digance

'Richard Digance is brilliant' - Bill Bryson

'Richard is imaginative, inventive and brilliant' - Dan Patterson, Producer - Whose Line Is It Anyway? / Mock The Week

'Digance was a great inspiration' - Ross Noble

'Richard Digance is a National Treasure' - Bob Harris, BBC Radio icon

'During the 2020 to 2022 lockdowns I dreamt of disappearing to a deserted island where I could write, play music and paint pictures. I did just that but only in my head. Now you are invited to join me.'  - Richard Digance

Covewae, remote island of fiction, pronounced Coveway, became the home of Timothy 'Conker' Collins, once a rogue schoolboy who stole homework from his classmates, unlikely beginnings for such a world of fantasy and fun, yet that's exactly how it came to be. The ultimate hideaway, a place he discovered whilst on the run, for such a reformed tearaway is now open for your visit, where you can enjoy its tranquillity and endearing wildlife, a wild life different to that he once knew, and to enjoy the books, music and art it has inspired. You have an open invitation to visit with Richard's and Conker's compliments, with an invitation to own a plot of Covewae Island yourself.
