Literature lovers can enjoy the best in writing from Thursday October 10 to Sunday October 13 at the annual Beverley Literature Festival.

This year’s programme has more than 40 events taking place over four days with a line-up including Adele Parks, Jane Gardam, Edward Stourton, Val Wood and Matthew Parris.

Beverley Minster will be the stunning location for Saturday evening’s main event with author Salley Vickers.

The Ridings Writers event gives people the chance to hear authors who were born or live in Yorkshire and to find out how Yorkshire has influenced their writing.

Dorcas Taylor, director of the festival, said: “With such a packed programme that really does offer something for everyone.”

Tickton Grange Hotel will be hosting a Literary Lunch with Ridings Writer, Susanna Jones, as well as the festival’s first Creative Writing School, led by Toby Litt and Helen Cross.

There is also a programme of children’s events. Tickets go on sale on Tuesday August 27.
