This month we announce the return of 'Weaver Words' Frodsham's own Literature Festival from Wednesday, 29th April to Sunday, 3rd May.

BBC radio legend Mark Radcliffe and Radio 4 comedian Mitch Benn head an impressive line-up of talks, events, workshops and competitions. Mitch, from BBC Radio Four’s hit satirical 'Now Show', promises a musical feast of ‘Ten Songs to Save the World’ on Saturday 2nd May. Award-winning poet Michael Symmons Roberts opens the festival with an evening of poetry and readings on Wednesday 29th April and the following night TV forensic psychologist Kerry Daynes offers a spine-tingling journey into ‘The Dark Side of the Mind’.

Guardian journalist and author Henry McDonald will be giving his unique perspective on Northern Ireland, Prof Michael Parkins will talk about saving Liverpool from the 1980s militant era onwards and festival manager Lynn Pegler will be premiering a new play about Lewis Carroll exploring the fact behind the fiction of the real Alice. Crime novelist Stephen Booth will be guest speaker at a Literary Lunch at Forest Hills Hotel, and Daphne du Maurier and environmental writer Robert Macfarlane (The Lost Words) will come under the microscope in talks by Sue Zlosnik and Andy Jurgis. The festival finishes with Word Weavers, an explosive evening of poetry and music from award-winning poet Andrew Rudd and violinist Daniel Axworthy.

Full details of the Festival and online tickets sales are available on our Weaver Words Website (
