Another Successful Year for Penarth Literature Festival

Penarth Literature Festival had another successful year, with a variety of author talks and events held last weekend to suit all reading tastes. The festival was headlined by bestselling author Victoria Hislop who was promoting her new book, Those Who Are Loved, at a lunch event in Penarth Pier Pavilion. Other popular events included the retired child psychiatrist Mike Shooter discussing his book Growing Pains with local doctor Ceri Evans, as well as the launch of local author Laura Kemp's latest novel, Bring Me Sunshine. A creative writing workshop was held at Willmore's 1938 on Sunday morning, and the festival ended on a high with another sold out Poetry Showcase at Waterloo Tea on Sunday evening.

We're thrilled with how the weekend played out and we want to say a huge thank you to all of our loyal customers for being so supportive and making it all possible, to our venues for their excellent service, and of course to the wonderful authors and interviewers who took part.

There's not long to rest now for us as we have three more author events lined up for July and others planned all the way through to September. Head over to our events page for full details.
