Visiting

The festival will provide an interesting range of good quality entertainment; literary based interviews, presentations, theatre, music, comedy, academic talks, as well as workshops, exhibitions and local walks; an eclectic mix to inform and inspire the imagination! Workshops and participatory events will be a key feature this year so that you can join in and learn new skills or even improve old ones!

Over the next few months there will be more information available and we will keep you up to date with all that is happening. We are planning some interesting fundraising events as well, to help support the festival. Your opportunity to join in the fun at an early stage! Do watch out for posters and information on this web site.

The town boasts an excellent selection of quality shops and galleries, many exhibiting local works.
