THE second instalment of the Ilkley Literature Fringe Festival is taking place this week.

Creatives, writers and performers will come together at Ilkley Manor House courtyard on Thursday, August 4 to put on an evening of unmissable entertainment.

Rhubarb @The Triangle will perform readings from their new anthology. Author, Anita Simic will explore the subject of inspiration, from 'silly rhymes and serious sonnets all start with a thought.'

And Otley Troubadours will read passages from 'The Walrus Said' - a book of 'humourous, satirical and nonsense poems for confusing times.'

This is an outdoor event and attendees are encouraged to bring their own seating. This event is also weather dependent and changes may be made to the programme line-up due to unforeseen circumstances, although the weather forecast is looking towards being fine with breaks of sunshine.

As usual, though, as this is England, it is best to be prepared.
