Linton celebrates the opening of its children's book festival with a parade along the High Street

History came to life at the fifth Linton Children’s Book Festival which closed on Sunday after a week of events based around the theme ‘Windows on the Past’.

The community event, which is run in partnership with Cambridge bookshop Children’s at Heffers, offered a glimpse into life in a World War I trench, as well as world folk tales from the past.

The festival kicked off on May 4 with a parade, and during the week, a number of authors visited all the Linton schools as part of the festival outreach programme. The main festival was held at Linton Village College at the weekend.

The biennial book festival attracted thousands people and organisers said the it was a great success.

It is is funded by Arts Council England, Wadlow Wind Farm Community Fund, Linton Parish Council and other grant-awarding bodies.
