Exciting festival will encourage literature, art and culture - here is how to get involved

Inspired by the Hay Festival of Literature and Arts, the programme of events was started in 2006 by Sue Taylor as a means to show off the town and delve into its illustrious history. Although the schedule is not set in stone, the festival will run throughout May and start at the end of April, with a quiz night on the 27th and a reading of Arthur Morrison's work, a man best known for his in-depth look at the East End, on the 28th.
