Some good news - the programme for the Edinburgh Festival is finally published, so I can tell you what I'm up to, without getting my knuckles rapped!
I'm really excited, as I've not been invited to Edinburgh for several years and then suddenly I'm asked to do 3 different events at once!
I start on Weds August 19th at 10am, with a re-run of Hay's A Lark in the Ark storytelling, with Peter Bently in our snazzy T-shirts.
After lunch it's another joint event, with author Julia Jarman, reading Class Three All at Sea and Class Two at the Zoo, at 1.30pm. We did a similar event a while ago in Lichfield, which was hilarious. You can see some photos in the Picture Gallery.
I have the rest of that day free to visit other events. I rather fancy a talk by Neil Gaiman, as I love his wonderfully dark work, and Gerald Scarfe is a must.
All my events are suitable for 4 - 8 yrs and cost £4. Tickets go on sale today. If you want to book a place visit the festival site or call 0845 373 5888.
By happy coincidence, my good friend Lydia Monks, also based in Sheffield, is doing events on the same days, reading her new book Eeeek, Mouse! (sequel to the wonderful Aaaarrggh, Spider!), so we will be able to travel together.
