Fans of imagination, colour, the pen and pencil were treated to the fantastic "Winter Illustration Festival" on Saturday 26th November which was hosted at the Illustration Cupboard on Bury Street. Renowned for representing distinguished contemporary book illustrators from around the world, the event was highlighted with live music, a children's reading corner and blessed by the presence of Shirley Hughes and Angela Barrett. The event has enjoyed sixteen years of illustration under one roof. Quite a feast for hungry eyes, this festival celebrated all the fantastic memories we all have as part of our growing up and love for books. Winkball reporters were at the festival to capture the publics reaction to the free festival and gather their thoughts on the days events.
