The Book Festival will start off the festival season, this year on the weekend of the 23rd & 24th April.

 the Festival of Spring follows immediately after the book festival (why not come to both?) and runs from Monday 25th April to Sunday 15th May. 
Now in it's sixth year, and growing ever more popular, there will be over 60 individual events over the 3 weeks in numerous different venues, and with an array of different experts & contributors, combining the usual great mix of nature, art, foraging, craft, heritage and baking!
