Check out these amazing plant displays that @howle_hill_nursery nursery created for the East Meets West theme at the Cheltenham Literature Festival this year! Don’t you wish they were a permanent feature in Montpellier Park? 🍁  #cheltenhamliteraturefestival #cheltlitfest #liveevents #eventproduction #nature #naturephotography #landscaping #themedevents #eastmeetswest #autumn #cheltenham #eventprofs

'Waterstones Children's Bookshop', pencil, paper and erasers.  I know you're probably bored of me doing pencil, but more's on the way in terms of sculpture and painting, etc. You'll have to wait and see... #pencildrawing #pencil #sketch #sketchbook #quick #eraser #cheltenham #cheltlitfest #cheltenhamliteraturefestival #artist #artsy #art #moresontheway #readyyourself
My week of volunteering for @cheltfestivals is done βœ…πŸ€“πŸ“šcan’t wait to go back next year for the Jazz Fest πŸ™ŒπŸΌ 🎷#cheltenhamliteraturefestival #volunteering #thetimes
Cheltenham Literature Festival done βœ… hardest and longest I’ve ever worked and I couldn’t have made it through without this banging team - so grateful for having them around (including the people I didn’t get drunken selfies with). Highlights of my festival include: talking about dogs with Richard Curtis and Jaqueline Wilson (not together), seeing Attenborough, meeting one of the loveliest authors ever (@saschaloske ) and helping @gizzierskine get cat hair off her jumper 🐱

Jane with Akala after an inspiring talk at the Cheltenham Literature Festival #cheltenhamliteraturefestival #actavist
7:45pm twelve hours after I started work the final pallet gets loaded onto the lorry. I'm cold, wet and hungry. It's been a fun festival, but a difficult end. . . #cheltlitfest #cheltenhamliteraturefestival #takedown
Friday, @bolt451 and I went to a talk at the lit festival. It was about the rise of people moving away from Christianity towards paganism and other 'alternative spiritual practices'. It was really good, I don't think I heard anything new but it was just great to hear other people talking about things I'm interested in. The talk was with two women - one who is a secular tarot reader, the other a Wiccan who had written a book (at 21!) about Wicca. She didn't go into weather she took the psychological, engery or full on belief view of her beliefs but they only talked about the psychological view. That's what Freya finds most interesting, I do mostly but am more open minded and been surrounded with that dude of life much more so float about between all the views. One of the great things about witchcraft and paganism is that it doesn't really matter what view you have! If there is nothing more than psychology to it, it doesn't matter as psychology and the placebo effect are real and can have major benifits to people. As you can see, I've collected a few books over the years, I also used to have one called 'The real witches kitchen'. I've read bits of all of them (save the new one) but most of then are Wicca based. Wicca just never grabbed me. Parhaps it was as people seem to see it as a teenage phase, the nameless, faceless or celtic divine Goddess and God didn't grab me, for something that speaks of the importance of balance its very female centric (which is great don't get me wrong!) but on reflection made me uncomfortable in a way I didn't yet understand, the arseholes (as every 'community' have), the tales of slightly dubias beginnings in the Edwardian times, etc. I'm ashamed to say it but Marvel putting LGBT elements into the MCU and comics is what started my interest again.
#cheltenhamliteraturefestival  Was amazing as I got to see British National Treasure, #montypython #ericidle and get a Signed autobiography. I then briefly while trying to discretely walk into the guarded VIP section, meet #lennyhenry... Lenny who was very polite. I finished the day by making my way through the crowd in the Town Hall, with a good friend, Sophie to meet and have a signed copy of Emmy award winning actress #sallyfields autobiography. Sally was a gem to meet. I know my mum will enjoy her birthday present. For the younger Instagramers, you may remember Sally as the mum in Mrs Doubtfire with the late comedy genius, #robinwilliams or Forest Gump. The older generation will know from such films as #theflyingnun, #smokeyandthebandit With the late great #burtreynalds  or Steel Magnolias and most recently Lincoln... Thank you Sally, Eric and Lenny for being you. You are my inspiration, so it was such a pleasure to meet and see you there. X
And just like that...10 days of Literature fun over already!  We’ve battled through wind, persevered through the rain, and navigated our way through a whole heap of haikus, and we’ve had the best fun!  As always it’s been a pleasure to working with @cheltfestivals to deliver this wonderful event.  S’pose we’ve got a de-rig to be getting on with now... #eventproduction #liveevents #cheltlitfest #cheltenhamliteraturefestival #eventprofs #ukevents #eventpros #eventprofsuk #cheltenham #events #eventspecialist

Day 10 of 10 complete! Thanks to our incredibly hard working team, we successfully provided the main bar and cocktail bar at this years Times & Sunday Times Literature Festival. This huge and prestigious event saw hundreds of thousands of people walk through the doors to see the likes of David Attenborough, Gary Barlow & Lenny Henry to name a few. Now time for a very well earned rest!
