Updated: 3:07 pm, May 07, 2015

THERE will be more than a tale or two told as this year’s Stratford Literary Festival gets underway in earnest this weekend.

From astounding tales of epic journeys to stories about reporting from some of the world’s most dangerous war zones, the the festival welcomes writers, musicians, comedians and more from Sunday (April 26) through to May 4.

Among the well-known faces will be Ray Davies, one of popular music’s finest songsmiths and frontman of The Kinks for many years; comedian and writer and former member of The Goodies Tim Brooke-Taylor; and politician and author Baroness Shirley Williams.

Among the questions, Sally Magnusson asks how we treat older people, and BBC’s Economics Editor Hugh Pym discusses the Banking Crisis.

There will also be poetry readings, panel debates, workshops, and other events.
