Last year I missed the Friday at the Curious Arts Festival as DD was still at school, this year as a teen she has finished her GCSEs and so we will be there for the opening at 12 noon.
This means that hopefully we can catch the Curious Arts cricket match, as while I don't like watching cricket on TV I do love a live match, especially at a festival, with gin...
Other things I really want to catch are the conversation with Celia Imrie and I'm hoping to see Carol Ann Duffy, and Clare Conville.
There are always lots of weird and wonderful things going on during the day, so after grabbing a refreshing drink I hope to watch the snail racing, and maybe the Curious Silent Yoga Disco.
The comedy is always a highlight and is DD's favourite (especially last year when I ended up on the stage being made fun of!) so we will both be looking forward to the Noise Next Door, Simon Evans, Zoe Lyons and the other witty jokesters.
Children are not left out either, and even though neither DD nor I are tiny we sometimes join in the silly games and fun at the children's tent, after all at a festival we are all children aren't we. And there is a Curious Bear Hunt at lunchtime on Sunday!
I haven't even started on the music! Because music is an art form too of course and the musical line up is always good, discovering new bands is one of the best things about a festival, and on Saturday we shall be listening to Billy Bragg.
If you haven't got tickets, you can still get day tickets at Curious Arts Tickets - including tickets just for a day. And children 13 and under are FREE! Dogs are welcome too...so no excuse really - see you there!
