Top Speakers Corner comedians Marcus Brigstocke and Shappi Khorsandi take centre stage at the Dartington Hall Ways With Words Festival, alongside TV personalities James Naughtie, Peter Snow, and Stella Rimington - author and ex Director General of MI5.
The vibrant 10-day festival of words and ideas takes place in South Devon and provides a chance for those who read books to meet those who write them. The setting is glorious, the atmosphere is invigorating. People come together in spectacular surroundings to share the pleasure and power of language and ideas.
The Ways With Words festival celebrates its 20th anniversary this year, and lights up the medieval courtyard, the majestic Great Hall and the extensive gardens and woodlands to create a captivating setting for one of the UK's most popular literature festivals.
