We were thrilled that our third festival exceeded our expectations. We had five wonderful days of entertaining, enlightening and stimulating talks. Headliners whose stories we enjoyed included the acclaimed crime writers Minette Walters and Val McDermid, the eminent biographer A N Wilson, the incredible Holocaust survivor Iby Knill, comedian Christopher Biggins, foreign correspondent Fergal Keane, celebrated Cricket commentator Henry Blofeld, award winning writer Adam Nicolson and many more. Here are some photos of the festival taken by Peter Yendell.
