YEOVIL Literary Festival is back at the end of November. It’s a bit shorter than usual, and there’s a new venue, but the quality of the speakers is as interesting and diverse as ever.
Running for three days, Friday 29th November to Sunday 1st December, the festival has moved to Westlands, where the sofa-style seating makes for greater flexibility for socially distanced seating.
Speakers include the royal historian Lucy Worsley, on her new book, If Walls Could Talk, Dame Jenni Murray, who has just retired after more than 30 years as presenter of BBC Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour, chemical weapons expert Col Hamish de Bretton Gordon, and Jonathan Coe on his latest novel, Mr Wilder and Me.
The festival is run jointly by Yeovil’s Octagon Theatre, Westlands Entertainments Venue, South Somerset District Council, Waterstones Yeovil and Yeovil Community Arts Association.
