Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2013

StuartFestivbox

I usually need to be doing something – 25 years of working 70-80 hour weeks will probably do that to a person. So during the school holidays, I go absolutely mad. I’m bored, moody, grumpy, frustrated and irritable. The school are closed and I can’t do what I love doing best – presenting my book show.

Last year I spent most of July presenting to schools in England – thank goodness the Scottish schools break up in June and there’s a convenient over-lap period…..But then there’s August!! Dun-dun-duuuuuuuuhn!

Every school in the country closed and I was bouncing off the walls again – So not this year. I have applied for, and was accepted to present my book tour show at the largest art festival in the world – The Edinburgh Fringe! 25 days of presenting, every day for almost the entire month. AND IT’S FREE!!!

I just want to perform. I want to entertain, educate and inspire children (and parents) about the wonders of books, how brilliant it can be to become lost in another world.  Obviously I pretty much talk about my own two books but there’s some cool stuff about the environment, alternative energy, bums, bogies and big bottom burps. False teeth will be thrown and there may even be snot. One awesome hour of energy, and audience interaction too.
