We were absolutely thrilled to be part of this festival, having been along to hear other authors and illustrators in previous years. Not only did we get to appear in the programme alongside our heroes but it was also a chance to appear together running a joint session.
The tent was full of enthusiastic participants who were wonderfully convincing with their sound effects, and energetic in the bucket chain. Sam then held a masterclass in how to draw Vlad the flea which was clearly very effective as the pictures produced by the young audience were amazing.
The atmosphere around the festival was brilliant and we had a truly memorable day.
