Listen to this week’s Porty Podcast which features Portobello Book Festival – @portypodcast

Thanks to Hazel Darwin-Clements who has put together a brilliant podcast about this year’s festival. You’ll hear from Joanne, who is on the organising committee, as well as three of the authors taking part: Emma Christie, Grahame Howard and Lesley Kelly.

One thing to note though is that there is mention of the possibility of events being available to watch online, but, with a couple of exceptions, this will not be happening. We know a lot of people enjoyed the online events last year and we did consider trying to do some more online this year. However, as a small free volunteer run festival, regrettably we simply don’t have enough people to be able to comply with the Covid regulations while also trying to stream or film for later. The only events online are ones we have planned well in advance and which will be pre-recorded.

Grab yourself a coffee and settle down to listen and find out more about the festival, taking place over the weekend of 1st-3rd October.

Listen to find out how you can join in and hear more about the project coming together.There's music by Karine Polwart, the Soundhouse Choir and Oi Musica, also Luc Mishalle, Jo Zanders and MetX, and a Brass Blast collaboration arranged by young people from lead partner Kinetika Bloco, youth company in residence at London’s Southbank CentrePhoto credit Heather Longwelloimusica.co.ukletitgrow.scot
