9th May 2016


It was such a lovely affair!

Saturday the 7th of May saw an event at The Platform in Swindon. As part of the 23rd Swindon Literature Festival and organized by Martha Parry and Hilda Sheenan this event was a family affair and a love affair with Swindon – it was a super Swindon Affair.

Read my Festival Chronicle about it here: https://festivalchronicle.com/2016/05/08/a-simply-splendid-swindon-affair/

Designed to be a celebration of the staggering literary output there has been over the years about Swindon – from Swindonians and others besides – the day and evening featured books, writers, painters, music, poetry, drums and songs.

Here’s a few photographs:
