What is your job?
I help to curate the amazing performances, workshops and activities that will be going on over the festival, making sure we’re representing the best of Bloomsbury’s formidable creative talent.
What is your favourite thing about working for Bloomsbury Festival?
The astonishing array of innovation and talent available in one small place! And the diversity of the artists, performers and academics that I get to meet and work with.
What is your favourite place in Bloomsbury and why?
I’m a sucker for a second-hand bookshop, and Bloomsbury has no shortage of them – my favourite would have to be Skoob Books, a maze of second-hand delights which I’ve lost many hours to.
If you could take your mum/sister/grandmother somewhere in Bloomsbury, where would it be and why?
My mum and sister both love orchids – so it would have to be Orchidya on Store Street, a beautiful specialist flower shop which I know they would both love.
What are you most looking forward to about Bloomsbury Festival 2018?
The sense of community that the festival brings. It’s fantastic that so many institutions and artists want to be involved in the festival, and it creates a really unique and special atmosphere for both visitors and performers.
