#ChipLitFest: A Good Time Had By All!

image 3Chipping Norton Literary Festival – commonly known as ChipLitFest (or, if you’re on Twitter, #ChipLitFest!) – took over town again at the weekend, filling venues such as the Theatre, Jaffé and Neale, St Mary’s Parish Rooms and the Chequers with authors and book-loving audiences.

Highlights included Sir Roger Bannister and Kate Adie appearing to talk about their books (and The Cat in the Hat also appeared – see photo, left), many events were sold out, and the festival gained coverage in the national press – a testament to how the festival, run by a committee of Clare Mackintosh, Caroline Wills-Wright and Merilyn Davies, together with a team of volunteers, has quickly established itself as a “must do” experience.

Here are a couple of photos our arts editor Kaye took of the ChipLitFest 2014.
