Cheltenham Literature Festival 2007 – Day Four

8 October – Ken Loach

While there was a noticeable decline in the traffic circulating around Cheltenham’s one-way streets today, the Cheltenham Literature Festival was nonetheless buzzing with dedicated booklovers who had managed to wrangle a day off work to attend Monday’s line-up of events.

Unluckily for the team, and all the other ticketholders of course, Ken Loach unfortunately had to pull out of his Cheltenham Town Hall talk this evening due to personal reasons.

The acclaimed British director of cult classics including Kes and Cathy Come Home was sorely missed, but has not been the only guest to cancel his date at this year’s Literature Festival at the last minute, with Russell Brand also disappointing fans on Saturday evening.

Ticketholders for the Ken Loach event have all been promised refunds, however, by contacting the Cheltenham Literature Festival box office on (01242) 227979.
