In three weeks time NiddFest will be ‘popping up’ at one of the UK’s finest festivals – the Curious Arts Festival in Hampshire, 22-24 July.
As part of the larger festival, NiddFest will be putting on a short programme of events:
The UK Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy reading from her work and giving a show for children with musician John Sampson
Leading nature writer Stephen Moss in conversation about his new book Wild Kingdom
Garden writer Jackie Bennett talking about Shakespeare’s Gardens
Kit Peel in conversation about his upcoming book for older children Snow Summer.
The Curious Arts Festival, located on a privately owned country estate in Hampshire, has been dubbed a ‘scaled-down Latitude’.
This year includes performances from Billy Bragg and Bombay Bicycle Club’s Lucy Rose, as well as literary talks from Best Exotic Marigold Hotel’s Deborah Moggach, and stand-up comedy from the likes of Simon Evans and Zoe Lyons. There is also opera and an author’s cricket match.
The festival is notably kid-friendly too – with bat walks, puppet making and an adorable Alice in Wonderland tea party. The setting, overlooking the Solent, is breathtaking.
NiddFest is delighted to be part of Curious Arts. We’ll be bringing plenty of pies too, thanks to Mr Weatherhead!
