Children’s author AF Harrold will be entertaining primary school children in Winterbourne, as well as performing poetry for adults in the evening.  Best selling local author Susan Lewis will be in conversation during an afternoon tea event.  

Times journalist and author of the acclaimed memoir Boy With the Top Knot, Sathnam Sanghera is also booked for the festival.  Other events are being announced in the next few weeks.
