There was a busy programme of events, and not only in Shrewsbury for LGBT History Month in February. Several lectures and dramatic talks s on key personalities of the past shared the billing with LGBT ceramics making, films and a young people's event attended by Caroline Paige. In Church Stretton poets had a chance to be creative in public, while Oswestry capitalised on its status as home to Gilbert and Gordon's wartime love affair with  a talk, a 1940s dance, and presentation of the new  ruby diamond.

Perhaps uniquely, a diamond was cast from the burnt embers of ephemeral love letters inspired by Gordon and Gilbert, and written by people to commemorate 'love in all its many forms'.

A short video of highlights from the festival can be viewed here. The song was written specially for the festival and was performed at the young people's event..
