With the third Sandstone Ridge Festival less than two months away, it's time to have another look at the array of authors who will be coming to visit the festival.
The Literary Lunch at Cholmondeley Castle on Friday 17th May, which has been sponsored by The Oldie, has already sold out its 150 seats but there are still tickets available, but not many, for events at Beeston, Bolesworth and Cholmondeley.
On Thursday 16th May the author of 'Waterways', Jasper Winn, will talk about his 1000 mile journey along Britain's canals, exploring their geography, wildlife, history and restoration for today's canal users.
The following afternoon at St Nicholas's Chapel, Cholmondeley, Stephen Anderton, The Times garden writer, and author of 'Lives of Great Gardeners' attempts to answer the question ' What Makes a Great Gardener?'
And on the final day Paula Sells, who has spent a lifetime with horses, hunting, and working with Riding for the Disabled will explore ' The Tack Room'.
