A special artwork to celebrate our 10th anniversary

Budleigh Salterton Literary Festival celebrated its 10th anniversary in 2018.

We marked our very special 10th year with a commission to record the Festival’s striking coastal location and our contribution to, and observance of, the importance of creativity and imagination.

The winning artwork has a permanent home in a public space in Budleigh Salterton, and also inspired a piece of writing by the leading South West poet Gram Joel Davies.

Judges included the distinguished landscape artist Alan Cotton and Brook Gallery curator Angela Yarwood.
