Huddersfield Literature Festival
March 21 to 31
Yorkshire poets Ted Hughes, from Mytholmroyd, and Philip Larkin, from Hull, had very different personalities and ideas about writing, leading to a long-standing and often hilarious rivalry. That rivalry is explored in a new exhibition which launches Huddersfield Literature Festival on Wednesday, March 20. Other festival highlights include talks by best-selling crime writers Ann Cleeves and Cath Staincliffe, Yorkshire vet Julian Norton and former politician Alan Johnson.
