More photos to come soon, honest, but here’s an interlude to tell you about an event happening immediately after the Literary Festival ends. We’ve been at St Swithun’s church hall a lot, and on Saturday and Sunday the church itself is holding a double celebration: of the 400th anniversary of the King James Bible, and the 100th anniversary of their beautiful reredos.
On Saturday, there’s matins with the community choir at 11am, followed by storytelling and art for young people with Sarah Rundle and Katrin Salyers (12.30pm-5pm). Then from 6pm you can hear readings from and inspired by the King James Bible – with a cocktail in hand. Terribly civilised.
On Sunday the church is open from 12pm for youto have a look round (and it is a beautiful building; we’ve traipsed through carrying microphone stands rather a lot this week), followed by poems, stories and music between 6pm-8pm.
