THE packed programme for the year’s Bradford Literature Festival is now available in venues across the district.

The 10 day festival starts on June 30, and will see 350 events held across the city.

The packed programme detailing the events, a weighty tome in itself, will be available this week from numerous venues, including the Tourist Information Centre and Waterstones.

Events will be held across the city at venues including the University of Bradford, City Park and City Hall.

A dedicated Comic Con weekend, on July 1 and 2, will celebrate comics and Manga and will be held at the University.

There will be appearances from Germaine Greer, politicians Harriet Harman and Rachel Reeves, and Radio One DJ Gemma Cairney, among the hundreds of guests.

There will also be a number of free family activities held in City Park, and events celebrating the 20th anniversary of Harry Potter and the 40th anniversary of Star Wars.
