Hay Festival 2016 – Exciting Times

Hay-on-Wye – Hay-oh-My!
2015-05-24 17.40.11It’s the 18th May  and time is definitely marching to a very fast paced drum indeed. We have been rehearsing our festival pieces and no small amount of re-edits, tweaks and minor adjustments have been accomplished with notable ease, tea, cake and imaginary valium!

They’ll be plenty of multi genre debut writing to enthrall and entertain the Scribblers Tent audience during our festival slot on Wednesday June 1st at 7pm. Tickets are selling very well and we’re fully confident another sell-out success like last year. Bravo  and applause in large quantities to Hay Festival for another brilliant slot! Thank you.

Have you bought a ticket already? No?! *coughs under breath*  Then you’d better get your festival skates on and book now – CLICK HERE TO PURCHASE.  😉

In other news … Emma van Woerkom – one of our poets and a professional stretcher of the number of hours in the day, has once again formed, created and is now steaming ahead with her 2016 Hay Festival Poetry Challenge. This year she will attempt to discover ten ‘found poems’ using the Hay Festival Programme as her source material. There’ll be absolutely no cake for her until she accomplishes her task…..although more cake for everyone else in the mean time!

We’ll keep you up to date with her progress  but here’s Poem # 1 of 10
