The Independent Bath Literature Festival proving a big attraction
Organisers of The Independent Bath Literature Festival are thrilled with the way events have been going.
The festival, which runs until Sunday, is bringing authors such as JK Rowling and Hilary Mantel to the city.
Tickets have been going fast, with many events selling out, although there are still places for some talks.
Festival spokeswoman Tamsin Treverton Jones said: "We are thrilled with the way the festival has been going, and the high ticket sales."

As part of the festival an exhibition by art group Tiny Moments Collective is taking place.
It includes mixed media art, written and spoken word all based around the theme of My Voice in the City.
The artists have all been through the mental health care system and are telling their story through art.
Artist and writer Susanna Piggott said: "Our artwork is an exploration of our story, but mental illness is a part of our story rather than being the total focus of our work. We use our creative work to overcome the stigma of mental health issues."
The exhibition runs until Saturday, at Bath Central Library from 10am until 4pm.
The Hall & Woodhouse bar-restaurant will be holding a free event tomorrow to encourage as many people as possible to enjoy the festival.
There will be folk performances by local choirs and folk groups to celebrate the publication of The New Penguin Book of English Folk Songs by Steve Roud and Julia Bishop.
It takes place at 12.30pm.
