FESTIVAL GALA NIGHT TRUE STORIES TOLD LIVE: HEAT OF THE MOMENT
One of the most loved events of Festival week, signifying the start of three full days of public programming, the ever-surprising Gala Night is here. Eight intrepid writers take the stage in turn to tell a seven-minute true story sans script or props, prompted by this year’s phrase ‘Heat of the Moment’. Journey with your guides: Simon Armitage, Bernardine Evaristo, Barbara Ewing, Hēmi Kelly, Chanel Miller, Wallace Shawn and Peter Sipeli.
Change from print programme: Ann Patchett is no longer appearing in this event.
