we survived the book festival

Thanks very much to everyone who came along to hear us all at our many and varied individual shows this Fringe/ Festival. We’ve almost recovered, I think.

My first reading of the festivities was at the Big Red Door for the opening Fringe cabaret night. A  treat of multimedia circus, I had a scaly, glittery trapeze artist with witchy acrobat underneath as I read the tale of the creature in the caves.

Loved doing Story Shop at the book festival (thanks to City of Literature) with the cellist Lindsay Martindale – see the wee recording they made afterwards: http://audioboo.fm/boos/167233-storyshop-writer-morag-edward-reads-an-extract-from-cello-man There was a heatwave that day.

Then the new Unbound book festival cabaret on Tuesday 24th with Writers’ Bloc doing a damn fine line-up in the splendid Spiegeltent. We had a blast – and we have new fans! The Unbound cabaret series was a fantastic addition to the book festival menu, long may it continue.

Last gig of the season was the final farewell show at the Big Red Door, a seven hour cabaret to celebrate and say goodbye to this unique venue. There may be photographs. I was on stage just as the tattoo firework bombardment hit the skies…

I’m sure the others will tell you of their literary exploits if you buy them a beer 🙂
