A good read....

Not just a pretty face, the Cotswolds is equally as capable of feeding the mind as it is the soul Literary types in search of cerebral stimulation can look forward to the Bath Literary Festival later this month and the Oxford literary festival in March. Even charming Chipping Norton has joined the big boys with its very own Chippy Lit Fest in April.Celebrating its 20th year, Bath attracts some literary greats this year but also promises lively cultural and political debate with Shami Chakrabati and Alistair Campbell and if all that sounds a little too heavy for your liking, Omad Djalili and Helen Lederer are there to ensure some laughs.Take a look at the Oxford programme and I defy anyone not to find something of interest, from David Bainbridge talking about the origins of curvology to Melvyn Bragg talking about the healing powers of literature, not forgetting something dear to our own heart (closely allied to our stomachs) Madhur Jaffrey and the importance of food to family culture.Many of the same names feature in the Chipping Norton line up (Polly Toynbee, Richard Madelely, Helen Lederer to name a few) but little Chippy does not live in the shadows of its neighbours and with the likes of Sheila Hancock, David Baddiel and Baroness Trumpington who wouldnt want to be in that audience?If youre looking for somewhere to curl up with a tome, preferably with a roaring fire and within walking distance of some fine food and ales, get in touch and well do the research for you. Happy reading!
