Literature Festival









The world of books is the most remarkable creation of man, a treasure chest the contents of which give great delight and actively foster a love of reading. Events such as the Mellor Literature Festival celebrate and promote reading in such a vibrant and exciting way by bringing writers and their readers together. It is a brilliant initiative!
