Wantage (not just) Betjeman Literary Festival 2015 provided the town with 9 fabulous days of fact, fiction and fun. With 42 events to choose from, the programme attracted lots of different people and ages. As Festival Chairman Ben Dreyer says
“This was another successful festival which enriched the life of Wantage for the young and old and everyone in between. We managed to cover everything from comedy to educational events, with national figures to local talent. A great result.”
If you attended or sponsored an event, the festival team would love to hear what you thought and what you would like to see happening in 2016. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any comments or ideas . We would also be delighted to hear from anyone interested in volunteering for Festival 2016. In particular, we would love to hear from anyone with administrative, marketing, publicity or fund–raising skills. Please email the above address as soon as possible.
In the mean time, thank you to all our sponsors, audience, speakers, performers, book publicists, venue managers, ticketing agencies, the printers (Leachprint), the festival bookseller (Madhatters Bookshop) and freelancers Howard Hill (IT), Peggy Ley ( Design) and Jackie Storer (PR) and this year’s group of fantastic volunteers.

We look forward to welcoming everyone to Festival 2016!
