Ilkley Literature Festival is the leading literary event in the north of England. As part of the Festival, on Wednesday 3 October and Thursday 4 October, Gina Campbell will be talking about her new book, Daughter of Bluebird, in the delightful setting of Bettys Café Tea Rooms, Ilkley. Both events start at 7.30pm. Following a delicious Bettys’ two-course Yorkshire supper, sit back as Gina Campbell, daughter of the legendary speed record holder, Donald Campbell, talks about living with the Bluebird legacy. A women’s water speed record holder in her own right, Gina was just a child when her father was killed while attempting to break the water speed record at Lake Coniston in 1967. She has been a key mover in the project to restore Bluebird K7. Includes a two-course set meal, followed by tea or coffee. Tickets cost £30 are available only from Bettys Café Tea Rooms, Ilkley 01943 608029. After the event, Gina will be signing copies of the book.
