June Friends’ Reception

On Wednesday 24 June we welcomed many of our Festival Friends to Ilkley Rugby Club for our annual spring reception.

While the Friends enjoyed a glass of wine and a few canapes, Festival Director Rachel Feldberg announced the first names appearing at the 2015 Festival, including 3 names revealed exclusively to the Friends and not included in the press release to the public.

We also heard from Leeds based crime writer Frances Brody, who introduced her Kate Shackleton mysteries. Frances explained how Yorkshire towns and landscapes have inspired her books and the perils of writing about Weimaraners!

The Spring Reception is a great chance for us to catch up with our Friends and thank them for their ongoing support of the Festival.
