So we’re just over a week from the second, absolutely brilliant, totally fabulously FREE Bradford on Avon Mini Book Festival.

Oh yes, not a penny do we want from you and your children, but we will still be delivering top flight literary (and not so literary – I believe there was some mention of sticking tights on your head) entertainment.

This is possible because we, the organizing authors and illustrator give our services completely for nothing to the people of the town. Because the library is given free for our use, because the librarians give their time, and because of our excellent sponsors and advertisers, all of whom believe in our festival and have reached deeply into their pockets to smooth our way.

Because there are costs.  Leaflets, programmes, banners and guest stars are not free… we have to pay for them.

So massive thanks for support go to: Wiltshire Council, Bradford on Avon Town Council, all our publishers, Jeremy Jenkins Estate Agent, From You to Me/Journals of a Lifetime, Riverford Organics, The Galleries Freshford, Wansborough Solicitors,  Ex Libris, Hartley Farm, King Edward’s School, The Courtyard Hair Dressers, WRAP, Edifice builders, Formosa Kitchens, Coffee Etc, Roundabout and Second Hand Rose.

Without your help, we just couldn’t do it for nothing. bunch
