Day One At the Festival

Day one dawned damp and drizzly in Harmony Garden, but that didn’t stop the 1,900+ school children and their adults from having an absolute blast at the Festival. The garden echoed with happy voices as they all discussed their favourite shows and perused the book shop for something new to read. After saying farewell to the kids, it was time to welcome some of the evenings authors – brilliant sessions from world traveller Phoebe Smith, Kiwi chef Peter Gordon, Jim Naughtie, Chris Brookmyre, Matt Ridley, Nick Clegg to name but a few – and what could be better than finishing off the evening with a hearty laugh courtesy our friend Rory Bremner! Hope you all enjoyed the evening and are ready to do it all again today….
