Cafedirect & Toast at Hay-on-Wye

    This coming Sunday 31st, as part of The Guardian Hay-on-Wye Literature Festival, I’ll be talking all things Shakespeare, at the breakfast hour of 9am.

    Cafedirect is sponsoring the event, providing free coffee – and I’ll see if I can’t rustle up some toast and jam to go with the Toast

    From the South Bank to South Wales…

    A fantastic workshop this morning at the Royal National Theatre, as part of the William Poel verse-speaking festival. Cicely Berry, the grand-dam of voice and Shakespeare gave the workshop after mine – I intended to stay for 5 minutes, and was there until the end. Great to watch a master at work.

    Now off to Hay-on-Wye, for the literary festival’s Winter Weekend.

    I’ll be reading for Libby Purves tomorrow morning, then giving a talk on Toast tomorrow afternoon, at 2.30pm.
