Purbeck Literary Festival goes WILD in 2017

Purbeck Literary Festival, now in its fourth year, begins tomorrow (16 February) and runs until Saturday, 25th. It is, according to, the first such festival of the new season, "as far as we can tell."

According to the festival organisers:
Our theme this year is WILD. We have a fantastic array of events lined-up. From Wild tales of travels, nature, poetry, music, and artists to Wild adventures in restoring old buildings, finding fossils and a whole host of kids events – there’s something for everyone.
The full programme of events is available to view and download from the festival website.

"Venues across the district, including village halls, schools, country pubs, cafes and hotels support the festival" but where exactly is Purbeck? It is a local government district in Dorset, England, named after the Isle of Purbeck, which is actually a peninsula.

"Exploring literature through our landscape" seems to be the festival's guiding purpose, according to the organisers:
Swanage and Purbeck in Dorset is a fantastic location for a relaxing short break by the sea. Why not come and enjoy the Purbeck Literary Festival events at the same time?
So, now you know!
