An exciting line up of well-known authors and speakers will be heading to the East Devon coast for this year’s Budleigh Salterton Literary Festival.

The event, which takes place in venues across the town, will also feature special tributes to its late honorary president, Dame Hilary Mantel.

Now in its 15th year, Budleigh Salterton Literary Festival has developed a reputation as one of the leading literary events in the south west; this year’s event is packed with a mixture of well-known names, emerging writers and panel discussions, as well as a full programme of events for children and families.
