The Wantage Literary Festival has continued to draw crowds both locally and from afar this week, hosting names such as Mary Jean Chan, Jeremy Morris and Richard Digance.

Zoologist Tom Moorhouse and Emma Smith, professor of Shakespeare studies at the University of Oxford, have also given talks respectively.

The festival will round off this weekend.

Curator Roger Vlitos and Channel 5’s ‘dog father’ Graeme Hall will be speaking on Friday.

Then on Saturday, fashion historian Rosie Harte, local author Mike White and award-winning authors Lucy Atkins and Clare Fuller will all be speaking at the Beacon community centre.

There will also be sherry tasting at The Cob and Pen from 6pm.

Events and talks have also been taking place this year at locations such as the library and the Vale and Downland Museum.
