Etheringtons Headline Cheltenham Festival!

While the title for this post is not strictly true (we were not, surprisingly, the main attraction at the Cheltenham Literature Festival), we did have the pleasure of performing as the last act on the last day of the fest to an extremely enthusiastic audience.

After enjoying a delightful lunch in the artists room (gooooooooooooood food) we took to the stage and, with the use of DUEL projector screens, visual monitors and all manner of gizmos, introduced Baggage and the Lost and Found workshop to a host of new readers.

And then we did a little signing!

Lorenzo, in a rare moment of madness, even agreed to draw Sid as a toilet for one young fan. Odd, but amusing!

Many thanks to Matilda Johnson and all the staff of both Waterstone's and the Chelthenham festival for supporting us and helping to make the event such a success. Oh, and for providing the cream tea! LOVELY!
