Reverend Richard Coles, who was the second contestant to be eliminated from the hit BBC dancing show, will speak at the festival’s concluding session – and tickets for his talk have already sold out.

The festival also sees the return of firm author favourites Tracy Borman, Clare Mulley and Tracy Chevalier, who all have newly released books.

Colin Rockall, festival secretary, said: “The popularity of the event led the committee to increase its size to 10 sessions, as well as a sell-out festival dinner and an all-day creative writing course. Ticket sales are already going well and some other sessions are close to selling out.”

The festival takes place from November 17-19 and the full programme can be found by clicking here.
