2005 Festival - Winner of the RBS Arts, Business and Community Award at the 28th National Arts and Business Awards
The 2005 Festival saw an innovative internet-based literature project - The Bollington Festival Internet Novel. Each chapter of this so-called novel was written by a different author, involving 18 authors in all. Each author had a day to compose their chapter, taking as their starting point the previous chapter (and the narrative strands of its predecessors) when it was published on the Bollington Festival website at around 6pm the previous day. This publishing relay took place during the course of the Bollington Festival 13-30 May 2005. It can and should all be blamed on the indomitable organiser, José Spinks. It's a rip-roaring read and has been digitally remastered. Click on the picture above to download a copy.
