Hay Festival 2015: Steve McCurry talks to Tim Marlow (Part 1.)

DSC_0055

Front row at the talk, with a wonderful slideshow of McCurry’s work swishing in the background this was an undeniably good talk. I learned a lot more, some tips will be posted when I return from annual leave in July 2015 so keep watch. For any of you that like Tim Marlow’s art shows then I can share that he has a new television show out early 2016 on Sky Arts titled “Artist Failure’s” and having asked Marlow he said it was literally about the failure’s of artists. Alas I cannot remember more than that because I was so excited to get a chance to briefly chat to him my mind in it’s excitement didn’t catch on to the rest of his words. You heard it 1st on artsyjoliegirl.com so look out for his new show 😀 x

Hey Hay! On my way….

Tomorrow I shall be seeing Tim Marlow Art Historian extraordinaire interviewing Steve McCurry the award-winning Magnum photographer.

Tim Marlow is a wonderful broadcaster and journalist every once in a while I’ll catch an old episode of his Great Artists series on Sky Arts. I could hear him speak for hours. 🙂

And we all know Steve McCurry’s magnificent, iconic photographs. For more see @steve mccurryofficial

Another event I am attending is “Memory and mental time travel” which sounds incredibly fascinating and is a talk by a scientist and artist! 🙂 Jpeg

Hay Festival 2014: What it Looks like/What to Do/Where to Go? (Part 2)

JpegThere is an island spot where you can sit on the free deck chairs but it was a drizzly day and it was not worth getting mud on my shoes to sit there. With better weather it’s an opportune time to read and wait in between events. 🙂

The venues are clearly sign posted and there are lot’s of stalls and random things to look at. All good fun for any age and if you have children 🙂JpegJpegJpegThere was a charming blackboard of quotes and wishes people wanted to accomplish before they die. Again my phobia of mud paralysed me from walking over and jotting down my very modest bucketlist: a luxury holiday in the Maldives, publish lot’s and lot’s of books, fall in love, eat Beluga Caviar with Lord Disick and go shopping with Mark Francis Vandelli and Ooooo meet Louis Theroux! 😛Jpeg

The onsite Bookshop:

This is where you can purchase new and some backlist titles of the writers and authors in attendance. Also the book-signings take place here too!
