Wolds Words Festival in Louth draws biggest crowds ever
Almost 2000 people attended this year's Wolds Words festival in and around Louth, making it the best attended so far.
The festival of reading, writing and performance drew to a close in Louth on Sunday, after 5 days of performances in 15 locations in and around the town.
Run by East Lindsey District Council, the festival took its inspiration from London 2012, with former Olympic swimmer turned BBC presenter Mark Foster the star attraction on Saturday night.
The programme included more than sixty events from calligraphy to graffiti, Lincolnshire dialect to folk rock, paper-making to book illustration, as well as films, plays, walks, talks and even a knitter-in-residence.
