Writers will talk about exploring neuroscience, travel, politics and more at the Wells Festival Of Literature, which starts on Friday.

Historians, entertainers and scientists will also headline the event, as well as a mixture of famous names and 'tomorrow's voices'.

The festival runs as a registered charity, and people can also try literary lunches at the event, which runs every October and is organised by volunteers in the city.

Wells Literature Festival will be held at Cedars Hall, in The Liberty, at Wells Cathedral School from Friday until October 26.
