CHELTENHAM will host two literary festivals in October. Along­side the Cheltenham Litera­ture Fest­ival, established in 1949, speakers will take to the stage at Holy Trinity, Cheltenham, for the first “Books for Life Live” event.

Speakers will include the founder of the 24/7 Prayer movement, Pete Greig, discussing his new book Dirty Glory; Dr Paula Gooder on “A Rough Guide to Heaven”; and Dr Elaine Storkey with her book Scars Across Humanity.
