Brooks Macdonald - Principal sponsor of Taunton Literary Festival 2017
The Taunton office of investment management firm Brooks Macdonald is proud to announce its principal sponsorship of Taunton Literary Festival taking place from 6 November 2017.

Organised by local, independent bookseller Brendon Books, the festival is now in its 7th year and is a highlight of Somerset's cultural calendar. It brings together writers from around the country to share stories and engage the community in the world of literature. Readers can meet their favourite authors from across history, poetry, science, nature, fiction and politics, exploring subjects and ideas through readings and question and answer sessions at the end of each event.

Nicholas Skelhorn, Senior Investment Director and Head of Brooks Macdonald's Taunton office, said:

"We are extremely pleased to sponsor this year's Taunton Literary Festival. The festival has a very strong following in the local region and beyond. This year's event will once again have an impressive line-up of well-known authors and speakers, covering a wide range of topics for all age groups.

We are proud to support the arts and it is great to be able to support initiatives in our local market. Sponsoring Taunton Literary Festival 2017 also provides us with a wonderful platform to raise awareness of our business in Somerset and the South West."

Lionel Ward, Festival Organiser and Director of Brendon Books CIC added:
"We are delighted to have Brooks Macdonald on board and are very grateful for their support. This is the first year we have had a principal sponsor and Brooks Macdonald's role in the festival has enabled us to offer an even better line-up to book lovers this year."

Since opening its office in Taunton in 2011, the team at Brooks Macdonald has provided investment management services to professional advisers, private clients, trusts and charities throughout the South West region (including Bristol, Cornwall, Devon, Dorset and Somerset). It has evolved into a thriving business and now employs 10 members of staff, headed by Nicholas Skelhorn, who joined the firm in 2011.

A full programme of events will be available from 1 August 2017. For further details and to book tickets please visit the festival's website:
