Each spring the pretty town of Hexham buzzes with anticipation, as one of England's top literary festivals rolls in. Writers great, old and new, come to the town's Queen's Hall, a magnificent Victorian landmark facing lovely Hexham Abbey, to speak about their work and perhaps teach a few tricks of the trade. Other events include illustration workshops and history lectures.

There's a focus on homegrown talent with authors from across the northeast slated to appear. And if you're with children there's plenty of hands-on fun for them. Who knows: maybe the festival will spark a passion in your family's very own lexicographic heavyweight?
