The festival will showcase a range of classical and world music; including 'Cellophany', eight cellos on one stage playing Beethoven, Schubert and Liszt and 'Shir' and exciting combination of energy and emotion through dance.There's art and cinema too, with showings of the National Theatre's Hamlet and the silent movie 'Picadilly', complete with live instrumentalists.If a coastal getaway, packed with literature and food is what you need this winter, the Ways With Words
literature festival takes place in the seaside town of Southwold
. With talks and workshops from a huge range of authors including Patrick Barkham, Melvyn Bragg, Michael Buerk and Terry Waite, the festival draws a crowd from far and wide and many of the events get booked up months in advance.
