Bluebeard with Chris Riddell, Hay Festival 30



My association with the Hay Festival goes back twenty years – they championed me at the beginning of my career. So it was truly wonderful to be a part of this year’s 30th festival. And what a great event I had!! Not only was I telling ‘Bluebeard,’ one of my favourite shows, but the mighty Chris Riddell drew live as I performed.

He produced fifteen drawings in fifty minutes, and we both loved the experience so much, we are hoping to do it again 😀 There are also plans to turn the drawings and a transcript of the night into an illustrated pamphlet.
