It has just been confirmed that Joanna Trollope is appearing at the Wedmore Arts Festival on 9 July and will be interviewed by Francine Stock. I am really looking forward to it as they are both such big names in their fields. I have heard Joanna speak before and, unlike some writers, she is actually a good public speaker - as well as being a best-selling novelist! The Festival has attracted some well-known names for 2015, including Marcus Brigstocke, Clare Teal and Ben Thapa (who is Don Jose in Carmen), plus of course Carmen herself aka Marie Elliott. I'm afraid the Barn has now been booked for that week.  Speed was of the essence!
