Hay Festival

This weekend I managed to get to the Hay On Wye Literary Festival. It’s always lots of fun, but is a rather strange event, kind of like a Glastonbury for the average radio 4 listener.

In this kind of environment, you can’t help but give in to a certain amount of ‘celeb spotting’ every time you see someone vaguely famous. At Hay, this inevitably makes for quite an eclectic collection of celebrities. During my short few hours there I almost bumped into the Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams; walked past comedian funny-women Sue Perkins; and squeezed past the sizeable book-signing queue for Julia Donaldson, author of The Gruffalo. And of all the 3 ‘celebrities’ I successfully ‘spotted’, I’m quite charmed to report that it was the kids author who was definitely receiving the most attention from her fans.
