Literati gather for festival launch

Festival chairman Jan WilliamsonFestival chairman Jan WilliamsonLuminaries from the world of literature gathered at Marlborough Town Hall this evening (Friday) to celebrate the launch of the fifth annual literature festival over a glass of wine.

Novelist Mavis Cheek - who founded the festival and chaired it for the first four years - noted that “drink and literature go awfully well together.”

She reminded supporters, sponsors, hosts and ticket-holders: “No-one gets paid for this. We do it for the love of literature, and you all come because you love literature too.”

She welcomed the new chairman, Jan Williamson, who promised ticket-holders “a great literary feast, as varied as it could be.”
