Back in Starbucks again, bringing you this first update of the day’s activities. Being a Friday, most of the activities this morning were aimed at pre-school children.
Things kicked off at Waterstones bookstore, which seems an appropriate venue or promoting a family image of the festival; I’m definitely feeling as though the fact that it is Mother’s Day on Sunday is the underlying theme of the festival.
The activities at the bookshop included animated nursery rhymes – some of the UH students filmed interviews with the mothers and tots at the event, so keep an eye out on the website for those. I also discovered there was face painting at the venue, when one of the film crew rocked up at the screening of Vinyl sporting this beautiful artwork!
