Come and meet Carisbrooke Castle’s favourite four-legged friends! This is your chance to get hands-on with our donkeys.

Behind them, hundreds of men and women, working with the latest technologies kept watch for every hour of the entire Second World War to keep this nation safe.

This event is part of the Isle of Wight Literary Festival.
