So another Farafina Workshop has come and gone but not without characteristic glamour. On Friday 16th August the workshop participants, mentors, sponsors, well wishers and the everyone else who loves a literary fest gathered at Oriental Hotel, VI to mark the end of the 2013 Farafina Workshop.
Courtesy of our favourite photographer (ever!), Tolu Talabi, enjoy these glam shots from The Farafina Trust Literary Evening.
It was impossible not to be enchanted by literature at a venue like this.
