I have always wanted to go to the Hay On The Wye literary festival but felt that maybe its for people who don't say AMAZING every other word and shriek swear words at every opportune moment...Also, where the hell is Hay On The Wye?
When I heard that the festival was coming to London my ears pricked up, I mean, it's always easier to tackle something slightly alien when you know your escape route. The Guardian Hay Festival will be coming to London between 23rd - 25th October and getting settled at Kings Place - which is the home of The Guardian and I've always fancied a sneak around. LIterary names involved include Will Self, Martin Amis and Faye Weldon.
Why am I writing about this on my fashion blog you may ask? Well, Sophia Bennett who has written fashion novel Threads will be taking part in the mini Hay, this Saturday she will be hosting the Fashion with Compassion event. A limited edition issue of Threads will be available with a cover designed by the one and only Giles Deacon, £1 from each book will go to Save the Children. The event takes place from 11am in the St Pancras Room for those 11 plus hopefully I wont feel too stupid there then!) for more info go here
