LEISURE: Getting ready for the 2018 Ilminster Literary Festival
PLANS for this year’s Ilminster Literary Festival were given a civic seal of approval during a launch event held at Whitelackington Manor.
The Deputy Mayor of Ilminster, Cllr Julie Fowler, congratulated everybody involved in the festival which will be held from May 30 to June 8.
A host of events have been lined-up and Cllr Fowler said it was fantastic and testament to the hard-work of the festival committee that it had been able to pull together an amazing itinerary of guest speakers including best-selling author Fay Weldon and award-winning war correspondent Martin Bell.
The launch at Whitelackington Manor was attended by festival supporters and sponsors and local authors.
