Just call me Alice…

Very excited to be heading Doune the Rabbit Hole this weekend. I will be reading some poems on the Longhouse Spoken Word Stage on Saturday, then singing along with my brother Jim’s band Easy, Tiger! on Sunday lunchtime. Taking the man and kids too – very glad about that, especially as Doune the Rabbit Hole’s ethos is to introduce children to music and poetry, and to make sure there is no financial boundary to children learning creative skills like playing instruments, sculpting, writing poetry, and animation. Therefore, all under 12s get in free, and I hope there will be some very fun activities for them!

Very excited about the music lineup, which includes Hidden Masters, the Lovely Eggs, and Adam Stearns & The Glass Animals. Full line-up here: http://dounetherabbithole.co.uk/line-up/

This year, the festival will be held at Duncarron Fort, Carron Valley, which is being constructed by the Clanranald Trust as a full-scale replica of a medieval fortified village.

…and you can get there completely by public transport! http://dounetherabbithole.co.uk/location/ Hope to see you there.
