We hear a lot about the ‘winter blues’ at this time of year don’t we? The sunshine’s sparse, the wind cuts like a knife and it’s no longer acceptable to consume mince pies and mulled wine *sigh*. Fear not booklovers, we have a few mood-boosting suggestions for you…
- Cosy up in an armchair with a good read (maybe make some headway on the pile of books purchased at last year’s festival!)

- Purchase your tickets for our MINI MARCH FESTIVAL!
