Organisers of the 2018 Budleigh Salterton Literary Festival have announced two fundraising events.

The first is ‘The Second Best Bed’, a one-woman play about the instruction in William Shakespeare’s will that his wife Anne be left only one thing – the second best bed.

The play, on tour from the Worcester Repertory Company, sees Liz Grand star as Shakespeare’s wife Anne Hathaway, remembering their life together on the night after her husband’s funeral. It’s at Budleigh Salterton’s Public Hall on Friday, November 17. Tickets: £10 from the Tourist Information Centre (01395 445275).

The second fundraiser features fleet-footed vicar and broadcaster Rev Richard Coles, who had to pull out of this year’s festival due to filming commitments, and who is currently appearing on the BBC One’s Strictly Come Dancing.

He has re-arranged his visit to Budleigh Salterton and is due to appear on February 20. Tickets will be available from December 15.
