Literary Festival 2017: Travel writing: A Sense of Place
Friday 17 - Sunday 19 November

This year's festival is inspired by a very special and rare object in the Museum's collections. The relief of the Celtic horse goddess Epona is one of only two representations of Epona discovered in the UK. Epona was the protector of horses and anyone who relied on these noble and beautiful creatures.

Keynote speaker for Saturday 18 November at 7pm will be Marie-Elsa Bragg.

Speakers include George Szirtes, Kathleen Jones, Bob Orrell and Christopher Somerville

Speakers and the programme for the weekend will be available shortly.
