Fire Starter! 

Swindon Festival of Literature gets underway with Dawn Chorus entertainment
 

As the sun rose over a sleepy Swindon yesterday, hundreds of early birds were gathering to see the arrival of the 23rd annual Swindon Festival of Literature.
 
Held high on a ridge in Lawn Woods, the traditional Dawn Chorus entertainment got underway from 5.30am with pipers, singers, storytellers, jugglers, poets, musicians, and outdoor entertainers all vying for the attention of the early rising festival goers!
 
You can view a few pictures from yesterday's big launch below. Our thanks as ever to Richard Wintle for setting his alarm so early!
 
Events on until 14 May
 
The Festival of Literature brings 12 days of authors and speakers to Swindon, all carefully spaced and placed to enable you to attend as many as your own timetable and stamina allow.
