It’s September… with August having just slipped by in a scurry of damp wellies.

There’s still time to squeeze out the remains of the summer – in this month’s View, find out about upcoming carnivals and festivals, or maybe it’s time to try a new sport?

This month marks two firsts: Wilton History Festival and Salisbury Literary Festival – both new events bringing together a wealth of historians, authors, writers and thinkers.

Countless artists and writers have found this region an inspiring place to be – so it’s no surprise that the guest speakers include some truly great names.

Also in this month’s View, Childline founder and New Forest resident Dame Esther Rantzen visits a school in Hampshire, and award-winning author Tariq Goddard talks about his latest novel, ‘Nature and Necessity’.

Reporter Andy Datson tackles women’s rugby and wine expert Will Harding finds good value in Aligoté – an overlooked wine grape.

And finally, don’t miss our competition to win tickets to Live Escape Salisbury where you and five friends can spend a frantic hour in its new Spectre game.

Best wishes, Paula Tegerdine
